DOLE Audit Checklist for Joint Assessment

August 28, 2016 by Jayson Acob Yanuaria 1 Comment

I compiled this DOLE audit checklist for DOLE audit or joint assessment in order for you
prepare ahead of time. You can also refer to this DOLE audit checklist if you wish to
perform self-assessment of your company. There might be additional requirements
based on your size and industry, however, this is a good starting point. You will only be
given 10 days to comply if DOLE found problems during joint assessment. Having these
things now will give you more time later to prepare whatever additional requirement they
might ask.

This DOLE audit checklist is long but I organized it in multiple parts for easier reading.
Some samples and templates are also provided so you have something to use as

Payroll documents for the last 3 years

You should retain at least 3 years of payroll document in your establishment for DOLE
audit and other purposes. They will use these documents to make sure that your payroll
computation is correct. With these documents, they will check if you are following the
minimum wage rate, paying overtime pays with correct rates, leaves, ND, SSS, PHIC,
HDMF, 13th month pay etc. Usually, they also make random interviews to employees
just to cross check their answer with the figures with your documents. These documents

1. Pay slips and proof that the employees received their salary. The proof can be a received
signature in the pay slip or proof of bank transmittal to the employee’s bank account.
2. Payroll registers (Monthly and per period) – this contains the summary of all earnings and
deductions for each employee. Payroll-Register-Per-Period.xls (477 downloads) Payroll-
Register-Per-Month.xls (386 downloads)
3. Copy of your leave and overtime forms if your company requires approval of leaves and
overtime work
4. SSS Form R5 with proof of payment – this is the monthly form needed when paying SSS
5. SSS Form R3 with stamp or proof of submission to SSS – this is the report submitted to
SSS to update the employee contribution.
6. HDMF Form MCRF with proof of payment – this is the monthly form needed to pay HDMF
contributions of employees
7. PHIC Form RF-1 with proof of payments and submission to PHIC
8. HDMF STLRF for HDMF Loans if applicable
9. SSS ML1 and ML2 for SSS Loans if applicable

For the items 4 to 9, DOLE audit those documents to make sure that you are making
deductions and contributions to your employees SSS, PHIC and HDMF account. This is
also to make sure that whatever amount you deducted from the employees are properly
remitted to the government agencies.

DOLE (Department of Labor and Employment) is actively conducting joint assessment

procedures where they visit business establishments for audit. The purpose of this joint
assessment is to help business owners comply with DOLE, OSHS (Occupational Health
and Safety Standards) and OSHC (Occupational Safety and Health Center) policies and
regulations. It is best if you this these DOLE audit checklist even if you are not yet
notified for audit.
