Unlimited Audit Consultation for Plans Completed by Berkshire

Occasionally a client will come under audit by the OFCCP after submitting the data for their plans but before the plans are completed. In this case, as long as we are notified within a reasonable amount of time following the receipt of the audit letter, Berkshire will expedite the completion of the one plan that is being audited at no additional cost. The other non-audit plans will be completed within the usual timeframe.
