elaws stands for "employment laws assistance for workers and small businesses". This Web site was developed to help employers and workers understand their rights and responsibilities under the federal employment laws administered by the U.S. Department of Labor. The elaws Advisors mimic the interaction an individual might have with a DOL representative by asking questions, providing information, and directing the individual to the appropriate resolution.
The elaws Advisors are one of a number of
compliance tools developed to further DOL's dedication to provide clear, accurate and easy-to-access compliance assistance for employers and protect the wages, health benefits, retirement security, safety and health of America's workforce.
Please note that there is not an elaws Advisor for every DOL law or regulation. Therefore, the list of Advisors you receive after making your selections may not be a comprehensive source of information on all laws and regulations related to your situation. DOL plans to continually develop new Advisors to further assist America's employment community.
