The FirstStep Employment Law Advisor is designed to help employers
determine which federal employment laws administered by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL)
apply to their business or organization, what recordkeeping and reporting
requirements they must comply with, and which posters they need to post. The
Advisor can help all employers, including non-profit organizations, private
sector businesses and government agencies.
If employers already know which federal employment laws apply to them, the
Advisor can quickly provide basic information about how to comply with these
laws, including the requirements for recordkeeping, reporting, and posters and
other notices. This information can also be printed off as a reference guide.
This Advisor provides three basic starting points depending on your interests
Please note that the FirstStep Employment Law Advisor is intended as a
major DOL laws – it does not cover all laws administered by DOL. In
addition, the system will not identify laws administered by other federal
agencies that might be applicable to your business or organization.
You may want to contact your
State Labor Office to obtain information about your state's requirements, or
other federal agencies that enforce employment laws such as the
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the
National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), and the
National Mediation Board (NMB).
