Rely on Us

Lindquist’s professionals have served as labor union auditors since the firm’s inception. We are proud of the reputation we have earned by working with many of the nation’s trade, service, public employee and industrial labor unions.

We have expended tremendous resources, training and forethought to learn, and sustain, our knowledge of the unique language, structure and operations of labor organizations. 

Our union auditors understand Department of Labor (DOL) and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) reporting requirements and the necessity of properly designed and maintained labor accounting records. Clients rely on us for assistance with DOL Form LM-2 filings, IRS Form 990 filings, and development of related policies (e.g., conflict of interest, whistleblower, and document retention and destruction policies).

We Understand You

Adaptable to Your Needs

We recognize the unique needs and resources of each organization, from labor unions with a single bookkeeper to those with full-scale accounting departments. Labor union officers and accounting staff appreciate this knowledge and flexibility. 

Our Compliance Approach​

Laws and regulations governing the operations of labor organizations dictate your fiduciary responsibilities in overseeing the management of your union.  During an audit, we work closely with your officers and accounting department, legal counsel and other service providers to assist you in addressing compliance with laws and regulations and ensuring that the assets of your organization are safeguarded.

During an audit, our standard evaluation includes a review of:

  • Government filings 
  • Minutes and other documents
  • Expenses paid 

Lindquist Compliance Awareness Program

If you would like additional reassurance that your organization is in compliance with governmental regulations and that it is operating as efficiently and effectively as possible, you should consider the Lindquist Compliance Awareness Program (LCAP). LCAP is an in-depth consulting service designed to evaluate your organization’s operations, internal controls, and compliance with DOL and IRS regulations, beyond what is examined during a financial statement audit. 

LCAP typically encompasses a study of:

  • Internal controls 
  • Fraud risk 
  • Policies and procedures 
  • Best practices
