U.S. Department of Labor to hold training for local employers on March 9th


Many are aware that the Wage and Hour Division (WHD) is responsible for enforcing some of the nation’s most comprehensive federal labor law provisions, including minimum wage, overtime, record-keeping, child labor, family and medical leave, certain temporary worker programs (H visas), migrant workers, the prevailing wages for government service and construction contracts, and special employment including student learners, apprentices, and workers with disabilities. However, some may not know that the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) also offers free outreach and education opportunities for both workers and employers in order to advise them of their rights and responsibilities under these laws.

One such event is coming up on Wednesday, March 9, in Tulsa, where the DOL is hosting an FLSA seminar covering minimum wage, overtime, exemptions, record keeping, youth employment, and employment relationship, among other topics. All types of employers and their representatives are welcome to participate! The DOL has found that the majority of violations occur because employers aren’t aware of the law or how it applies to them. We are hoping that training opportunities such as this will offer the compliance assistance that employers need.
