The state Department of Labor has the authority to investigate and ascertain employee wages; enter and inspect a place of business or employment; and examine any records that in any way relate to wages, hours, or other conditions of employment. The state inspector may copy the records as he or she deems necessary and may require an employer to provide “full and accurate” statements in writing of the wages paid to all employees. The investigator may interview employees in order to ascertain whether the law is being complied with (PA Stat. Tit. 43 Sec. 33.107).
Records kept out of state. If an employer's records are stored in a central recordkeeping office out of state, the employer has 7 calendar days following a verbal or written notice to make those records available at its place of employment.
