Essential Protections: Federal Labor Laws and Workplace Rights
A free outreach webinar to help workers in all industries know and exercise their rights in the workplace. The Wage and Hour Division is committed to protecting all workers in the U.S., including low-wage and immigrant workers who are among the most at risk. Most employers provide safe workplaces, comply with labor laws, and take their responsibilities seriously. However, there are some workers who are denied the basic rights afforded them under federal labor laws.
Most employers are required to pay minimum wage and overtime to workers in accordance with the Fair Labor Standards Act. Some employers are required to provide medical leave to eligible workers under the Family and Medical Leave Act. This free webinar is being offered by the US Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division to help workers understand how they are protected by federal labor laws how to exercise their rights in the workplace.
Meeting details will be emailed after registration is confirmed.
