New Employment Resources from DOL

The new Office of Compliance Initiatives in the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) launched two websites to help workers and employers find information about federal laws that address workplace health and safety, fair pay, family and medical leave, unions, veterans’ issues, discrimination, and more. 

Worker.gov and Employer.gov provide centralized collections of information to help workers understand their rights and employers understand their responsibilities.

Also from DOL, Apprenticeship.gov, connects employers and job seekers through apprenticeship programs, and features a search tool that enables career seekers to find programs by city, state, and occupation.
