DOL Issues New Compliance Tools


The Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor has announced the release of new tools intended to assist employers in complying with federal labor laws.

These new tools include plain-language presentations on topics such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, federal child labor requirements, and employers’ responsibilities to provide rest breaks and proper facilities for nursing mothers. The WHD states that these tools, in conjunction with, and other recently released online tools, will ensure greater understanding of federal labor laws and regulations.
