The FirstStep Employment Law Advisor is one of number of elaws Advisors that the Department of Labor (DOL) has developed to help employers and employees understand their rights and responsibilities under certain federal employment laws. Each Advisor includes links to more detailed information that may be useful, such as links to regulatory text and compliance assistance materials.

This Advisor will help you determine which of the major DOL employment laws and regulatory requirements your organization must comply with. Because the laws applicable to a specific business or an organization depend on such factors as the nature and location of the business, the number of employees, the annual dollar volume, and whether the business has federal contracts or subcontracts, the Advisor will ask you a series of questions in these areas.

There are some situations when the Advisor may not be able to help you decide if a particular law applies to your business or organization, and you may wish to speak with a DOL representative about a particular issue. In order to assist you, the Advisor provides DOL contact information for each law.
