Training Opportunities

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division protects the workplace rights of essential workers who are keeping our country moving forward during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Workers in grocery stores, health care, delivery services, retail establishments, agriculture, and other essential industries have remained on the job despite many potential risks to their own health or that of their families. The Wage and Hour Division is committed to ensuring that these, and all workers, receive the workplace protections provided under the law.

Rapid changes in the workplace have surfaced many questions for workers, their advocates, and employers about wages, hours worked, and time off for workers or their family members dealing with serious illness.  The Fair Labor Standards Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act provide protections for workers that may be more crucial now than ever before.

WHD is pleased to offer training on these critical workplace protections through our Essential Workers - Essential Protections Initiative. Please see below for current training opportunities. Check back often as new events are being scheduled.
