US Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division opens field office in Midland, Texas

MIDLAND, Texas The U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division has opened a field office in Midland to connect employees, employers, community organizations and other stakeholders with the resources and assistance needed to ensure compliance with federal wage and hour laws. It is located at 602 North Baird St., Suite 126, ZIP code 79701-4772.

"We are extremely pleased to announce the opening of another Wage and Hour Division office in the state of Texas," said Cynthia Watson, regional administrator for the division in the Southwest. "This new office will be another great one-stop resource for compliance assistance and information concerning the federal labor laws we enforce."

The Wage and Hour Division's Midland Field Office has oversight for agency enforcement throughout the Midland/Odessa area. It is an extension of the division's Albuquerque District Office, which is located at 500 Gold, SW Room 12000, ZIP code 87102.

To receive wage and hour-related information, file a complaint or ask a question about federal wage laws, individuals should contact the Wage and Hour Division, which administers the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Davis-Bacon Act, the Service Contract Act, and the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act, among other federal laws.
