Department of Labor Evidence Officials
The Evidence Act directs the Department to designate key officials to ensure effective implementation of the law. The Evidence Officials support the Department in fulfilling the Evidence Act requirements and its broader evidence agenda for data-informed policies and programs to improve the lives and safety of American workers.
Each Evidence Official has unique responsibilities corresponding to the three major sections of the legislation: Evidence-building Activities (Title 1), Open Government Data (Title 2), and Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency (Title 3).
