Background: Organized by the Wage and Hour Division in Dallas, the forum will include a panel discussion with representatives of the department’s OSHA, Employee Benefits and Security Administration, Office of Labor-Management Standards, Veterans’ Employment and Training Service and Women’s Bureau. Also attending are representatives of the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Health & Human Services, Internal Revenue Service, and National Labor Relations Board.

Wage and Hour Division representatives will review topics such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, workplace equity and common wage violations in the care industry.

Quote: “The U.S. Department of Labor hopes events like these equip employers with the information and understanding they need to avoid compliance issues and, in turn, help ensure they pay the people who do the essential work needed in the care industry all of their rightful wages,” said Wage and Hour Division Regional Administrator Betty Campbell in Dallas. “We encourage all employers to review federal labor laws, use the tools the department offers and contact us for more information.”
