The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) administers and enforces more than 180 laws, on topics as diverse as migrant workers and veterans, with a host of wage, benefit and safety laws in between. There are a handful of these laws, however, that are most likely to be the subject of a claim filed with the DOL against a private employer. These include the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) and Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Fortunately, there are some basic strategies that employers can take to minimize trouble if the DOL comes knocking.
