The Department of Labor enforcement agencies foster and promote the welfare of wage earners and retirees of the United States, by ensuring their safety, improving their working conditions, and protecting their retirement and health care benefits.
In carrying out this mission, the Agencies administer and enforce a variety of Federal labor laws that guarantee workers’ rights to safe and healthful working conditions, a minimum hourly wage and overtime pay, and freedom from employment discrimination, as well as the integrity of their pensions and health plans. This site aims to make the enforcement data, collected by these agencies in the exercise of their mission, accessible and searchable. It intends, also , to engage you the public in new and creative ways of using this data. It is a work in progress, but it is foremost our invitation to you, the American public, to engage with us, and react to our work by telling us what you think, and what you would like to see here!
