Wage and Hour Division (WHD)

You Work Hard - English - 60 Seconds

[music, “We can help. We’ll get you what you’re due. We can help. We’re always there for you.”]

You work hard and you have the right to be paid every cent of the money you earn. Our laws protect you whether you are documented or not. Here are some of the ways to protect your wages. Write down the name of your employer, their address, and telephone number. Also, every day you work, write down the times and number of hours you are on the job. This is very important.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division will talk to you in confidence, strictly in confidence, and the call is free. If you have a problem or a question, call 1-866-487-9243. That’s 1-866-4-US-WAGE. We can help.

[music, “…the American way for workers everywhere, you got rights. We can help.”]

A message from the U.S. Department of Labor.
