The United States Department of Labor (DOL) was established in 1913 with the mission to “to foster, promote, and develop the welfare of the wage earners, job seekers, and retirees of the United States; improve working conditions; advance opportunities for profitable employment; and assure work-related benefits and rights.” Today, the department is responsible for enforcing scores of regulations governing businesses large and small all across America.
Keeping up with DOL regulations is a challenge for even the most well-informed business owner. But strict compliance is critical to the long-term success of any company. Civil fines range from a mere $100 for small issues to a whopping $70,000 for willful violations, enough to financially cripple some businesses.
