How to audit an employee’s salary for an employer
On Jan. 12, 2018, a Wisconsin woman who had earned nearly $3 million in her career as an administrative assistant was called into an audit.
It was her second audit.
“I’ve always been a very, very good person,” she said in an interview.
“But I just feel like this was just a bad fit.
It wasn’t right for me.”
She had been hired at the end of 2017 to work as a compliance manager for the state of Wisconsin.
The state was looking to hire a compliance director and the first audit showed her salary was not a high enough level to qualify her for the position.
The employee was angry about the way the state was handling her salary, she said.
“The reason I wanted to leave was because I was feeling very low,” she told Axios.
“And I just didn’t want to see what happened next.”
The employee told Axio that she felt like her career was being pushed aside.
The audit revealed that the state had not accounted for her salary for at least nine years and had paid her less than $2,000 in the last year.
The next day, the state filed an appeal with the Wisconsin State Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court upheld the state’s appeal, saying that the employee had not been paid her fair share.
It said the state owed the employee an amount of money that was equal to the fair market value of her salary.
“It’s been a long road to get to this point,” said the employee, who asked to remain anonymous to protect her privacy.
The case brought by the employee has since been heard by a three-judge panel.
The court said that the pay discrepancy between her salary and what she was being paid was due to a failure by the state to properly account for her wages.
The appeals court’s ruling in this case comes as a result of a settlement reached in the case.
The Department of Labor has agreed to pay $2.4 million to the employee and other employees who were fired for refusing to participate in the audit.
The agency is also expected to pay another $1.6 million to employees who said they were denied overtime pay for refusing the state audit.
A spokesperson for the Department of Workforce Development said the agency is pleased that the court upheld the agency’s position that the audit was not based on merit.
“DWD’s employees have been paid their fair market rate for nearly 10 years, and we are confident that this judgment will help us restore the fair wage paid to DWD employees,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
