The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) provides that any person has the right
to request access to federal agency records or information. Like all federal
agencies, the Department of Labor (DOL) is required to disclose records
requested in writing by any person. However,
agencies may withhold information pursuant to nine
exemptions contained in the statute. FOIA applies only to federal agencies and does not create a right
of access to records held by Congress, the courts, or by state or local government agencies.
In an effort to assist the public, below are "quick links" to
specific FOIA-related information. The public may make FOIA
inquiries to OIG's Requestor Service Center at (202) 693-5116. Please
use the link below if you are unsure of how to make a FOIA request. We
encourage the public to explore OIG's and DOL's Web sites or use
our search engine to see if the information you seek
is already available to the public via the Web.
