During the federal government’s maximum telework flexibilities operating status, we are still able to receive and timely log FOIA requests and appeals submitted through the Department’s designated email addresses (foiarequests@dol.gov and foiaappeals@dol.gov, respectively) as well as those submitted through the National FOIA Portal.

Before submitting FOIA requests, individuals should ensure that the information they seek is not already in the public domain or located on the Department's website. If the information is not in the public domain, you should submit your FOIA request directly to the DOL component that you believe has the records you are seeking. A description of the Department's disclosure officers are provided for your information.


If you choose to submit your FOIA request via postal mail, and do not know which component has the records you are seeking, please mark the outside of the envelope, "Freedom of Information Request" and mail to:

Office of the Solicitor
Division of Management and Administrative Legal Services
200 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Room N-2420
Washington, D.C. 20210


You may fax a FOIA request to "FOIA Staff" at (202) 693-5389


You may also submit a FOIA request addressed to any DOL agency component by sending an e-mail to foiarequests@dol.gov. To ensure that your FOIA request is forwarded to the correct Department component, you must identify which agency you believe has the records you are seeking.

FOIA requests sent to any other DOL e-mail addresses will not be accepted as a properly submitted request.
