WASHINGTON, DC –The U.S. Department of Labor released the following response to the Office of Inspector General’s report regarding the 2017 Tip Rule Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.

“As noted in the Wage and Hour Division’s response, during the development of the economic analysis within the 2017 Tips NPRM, the Department of Labor complied with the requirements of the Office of Management and Budget and the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs as well as our own standard operating procedures for rulemaking.
