The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced last week the creation of the new Office of Compliance Initiatives (OCI). The new DOL office will “will promote greater understanding of federal labor laws and regulations, allowing job creators to prevent violations and protect Americans' wages, workplace safety and health, retirement security, and other rights and benefits. As part of its work, OCI will work with the enforcement agencies to refine their metrics to ensure the efficacy of the Department's compliance assistance activities.”

One of the ways the OCI aims to do this is through the creation of two new websites and, which house information about worker rights and compliance resources, respectively. As well, OCI plans to “enhance outreach to stakeholders”. OCI will cover compliance issues for pay and benefits, workplace safety and health, small businesses, required posters, discrimination, contractor requirements, and veteran and service member employment.
