I just received the results on a disputed audit for a local Chicago business client. The error on this audit is typical of how the audit process favors the insurance companies. The process starts with all of the payroll assigned to the governing classification and then qualifying payroll exceptions get carved out depending on duties, type of pay, etc.
In this case it was the starting pay that was in error. A number was pulled off of a spreadsheet that had nothing to do with the annual payroll figure noted on that same spreadsheet. This was a $32,000 mistake.
Please call with questions.
