United States Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division


The United States Department of Labor (DOL) administers and enforces more than 180 Federal laws. These mandates and the accompanying regulations cover many workplace activities for about 10 million employers and 125 million workers. The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) of DOL enforces Federal minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and child labor requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act. WHD also enforces the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act, the Employee Polygraph Protection Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, wage garnishment provisions of the Consumer Credit Protection Act, and enforces the prevailing wage requirements of the Davis Bacon Act and the Service Contract Act and other statutes applicable to Federal contracts for construction and for the provision of goods and services. Additionally, the WHD enforces a number of employment standards and worker protections as provided in temporary, nonimmigrant work programs. DOL is committed to providing its stakeholders, including America’s employers, workers, job seekers and retirees, with clear and easy-to-access information on how to comply with Federal employment laws. To further this commitment, the WHD will offer the seminar at no-cost. The focus of this seminar is the H-2B provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) provide for the admission of non-immigrants to the U.S. to perform temporary non-agricultural labor or services,[8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(b)]. DOL invites you to participate in this compliance assistance seminar. The seminar will provide pertinent information regarding the applicable provisions of the regulations enforced by the WHD. Below are links to WHD Fact Sheets that address some of the topics that will be covered at the seminar. You will have the opportunity to attend to presentations from the WHD, along with a question and answer session to address your specific concerns. Please RSVP no later than Thursday, Dec. 13.
