The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) provides that any person has the right to request access to federal agency records or information. Like all federal agencies, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is required to disclose records requested in writing by any person. However, agencies may withhold information pursuant to nine exemptions and three exclusions contained in the statute. FOIA applies only to federal agencies and does not create a right of access to records held by Congress, the courts, or by state or local government agencies.
In an effort to assist the public, below are “quick links” to specific FOIA–related information. Please use the link below if you are unsure of how to make a FOIA request. We encourage the public to explore OFCCP and DOL’s websites or use our search engine to see if the information you seek is already available to the public via the Web.
Should you have questions regarding the status of your request, please contact this office at 202-693-0106 or you can check the status of a request via the (FOIA Public Portal).
