U.S. Department of Labor Expanding Federal Compliance Force

  The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) will hire an additional 55 investigators and 8 technicians to support its efforts to assist employers and ensure compliance with federal requirements.

Investigators conduct investigations to determine employers’ compliance with applicable federal labor laws. Technicians provide front-line support for these efforts, including receipt and evaluation of incoming complaints and providing compliance assistance information for employers, workers and other stakeholders.

Last year, WHD collected a record-setting $322 million in wages owed to workers. The Division also conducted a record-setting 3,700 public events to educate employers and workers alike about their workplace rights and responsibilities.

Are you Compliant?

Industry experts estimate that at least 50% of Contractors are currently out of compliance. Did you know that Contractors are also subject to fi­nes and penalties, both civil and criminal, if their subcontractors are out of compliance with the DOL requirements?

Not knowing your duties is not a defense against compliance deficiencies! With penalties and sanctions becoming more frequent and often substantial, now is the time to put a strategic partner to work for you and your bottom line.
