The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is committed to providing Americas
workers, employers, job seekers, and retirees
with clear and easy-to-access information on how to comply with federal
employment laws. This information is often referred to as "compliance
assistance," which is an important part of the Departments efforts to protect
the wages, health benefits, retirement security, employment rights, safety, and
health of Americas workforce.
DOLs Office of Compliance Assistance Policy, working with many DOL
agencies, leads a variety of Department-wide compliance assistance efforts,
including this Web portal. All of our compliance assistance activities are
designed to provide workers, businesses, and others with the knowledge and
tools they need to understand their rights and responsibilities under DOLs rules.
