(a) Once an application is submitted, the commissioner or the commissioner’s designated representative(s), including the administrator, may inspect the applicant’s business to insure that the funds have been or will be spent according to what was or could be authorized. The commissioner or the commissioner’s designated representative(s), including the administrator, are authorized to make a complete on-site review of the operations of each applicant at the place of business where the workplace modification has been or will be made, as often as is deemed necessary.

(b) At a minimum, notice of an on-site inspection shall be in writing and be presented by the commissioner or the commissioner’s designated representative(s), including the administrator, upon arrival. On-site inspections shall not be conducted during legal holidays as defined in the Government Code § 662.003(a).

(c) During an on-site review or upon written request of the commissioner or the commissioner’s designated representative(s), including the administrator, the applicant shall make available all records relating to the requested or spent funds. Employers must maintain all relevant records for at least one year from the date of disbursement from the division.

(d) An employer commits an administrative violation if any part of the reimbursed or advanced funds are not used for the purpose or in the manner that the division previously approved in writing. Any unused funds must be returned to the division within six months of disbursement and any funds that are used not in accordance with the plan approved by the division must be immediately returned to the division.
