Support From Your Home Country

"I want to talk to someone I can trust"

Welcome to the Consular Partnership Program

Foreign consulates in the United States play an essential role in assisting their citizens who are working here. Consulates are offices established by your home country's government to provide support and services to their nationals living or working abroad. Through the Consular Partnership Program, the Department of Labor has partnered with the embassies and consulates of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador to make sure you have the information and help you need while working in the United States.

Partner Embassy Phone Numbers

Below you will find the phone numbers for the main embassy of our country partners. Let them know that you are calling to get help with questions or concerns you have about your job or workplace, and they will provide you with the number of the nearest consulate.

If your embassy is not listed above, you can find them here.

Here's how the partnership with these embassies and consulates can benefit you:

  1. Information and help: The Department of Labor, along with embassies and consulates, wants to make sure you know about your rights at work. These agencies can provide you with important information and assistance in a way that is easy to understand.
  2. Learning opportunities: These agencies may offer special sessions or workshops close to where you work and live to explain work rules, fair pay, and job safety. These sessions are designed to teach you what you need to know to protect yourself while working in the U.S.
  3. Sharing useful materials: Department of Labor offices throughout the U.S. work in partnership with local consulates to share useful materials that explain how to report problems at work or ask for help. These materials are available in different languages so you can easily access and understand them.
  4. Finding support: If you face any problems or violations of your rights, the Department of Labor and the nearest consulate in your area can guide you to the right place for help. They will help you get the support you need, even if you are not familiar with the system.

Remember, Department of Labor and its partnership embassies and consulates are here to help you. They want to make sure you receive full payment of wages and have a safe work environment. If you have any questions or need assistance with your rights at work including filing a complaint, don't hesitate to reach out to them. They are on your side and are committed to supporting you throughout your work journey in the United States.

Labor Rights Week

Welcome to Labor Rights Week in the United States, a collaborative effort between the Mexican Embassy and its network of 52 consulates, along with the U.S. Department of Labor and other federal labor agencies. This partnership highlights the commitment of both nations to ensuring labor rights, promoting safe and healthful workplaces, and full payment of wages protected under federal law.

This week serves as a celebration and recognition of the fundamental rights of all workers across the nation, encompassing a range of local level activities aimed at promoting awareness, education, and advocacy for labor rights in the United States. Each year, during the week that precedes Labor Day, consulates and federal labor agency field offices organize various events and initiatives to engage workers, employers, organizations, and communities. Some common types of activities that take place during Labor Rights Week are:

  • Workshops and training sessions
  • Outreach and education campaigns
  • Community events and fairs
  • Legal assistance and consultations*
  • Media campaigns

These activities during Labor Rights Week serve to empower workers, strengthen labor protections, and foster a culture of respect and fairness in the workplace. By engaging individuals, organizations and communities, Labor Rights Week contributes to the broader goal of ensuring dignity, equality, and justice for all workers.

*In some cases, Labor Rights Week may offer opportunities for workers to receive legal advice, consultations, or referrals to seek help on potential labor rights violations.
