File Formats Policy

  • DOL is committed to providing information and data in formats that most people can use.
  • Many of our documents are in  the Portable Document Format (PDF) and require Adobe Acrobat. In order to view the PDF documents, you must download free software from Adobe’s website.
  • Occasionally we will use documents that use other proprietary formats (meaning they use a software that you normally would have to buy). You can download these readers for free. Please see the chart below.
