The U.S. Department of Labor has shifted millions of dollars to Wage and Hour and OSHA for the purpose of hiring additional enforcement personnel. Hiring is currently underway to add 150 new investigators, who will be dispatched to the field to ensure compliance with wage and hour and health and safety regulations. There are also plans to eventually add approximately 100 more investigators for field compliance work. These additions would increase the current Department of Labor compliance workforce by nearly one-third.
