The Department of Labor ("DOL") has shifted significant resources to agencies responsible for enforcing wage and hour compliance and health and safety laws. According to published reports, the DOL has already begun hiring 150 investigators and plans to add 100 more investigators to ensure compliance with wage and hour and health and safety compliance, including in connection with federal stimulus projects. Altogether, the additional 250 staff would increase the DOL workforce dedicated to such compliance by about one-third.
