COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division has opened a field office in College Station to connect employees, employers, community organizations and other stakeholders with resources and assistance to ensure compliance with federal wage and hour laws. The field office address is 547 William D. Fitch Parkway, Room 112, ZIP code 77845.

“I am very pleased about the opening of another Wage and Hour Division office to serve the people of Texas,” said Cynthia Watson, regional administrator for the Wage and Hour Division in the Southwest. “This new office will be a great one-stop resource for compliance assistance and information concerning the federal labor laws that we enforce.”
