DOL Releases Electronic FLSA Compliance Assistance Tool

February 8, 2019

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently announced the launch of an enhanced electronic version of its Handy Reference Guide to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). This new online version of one of the Wage and Hour Division’s (WHD) most popular publications is intended to assist American employers and workers with a simple, easy-to-follow resource that provides basic WHD information, as well as links to other resources.

WHD established this electronic guide as part of its ongoing efforts to modernize compliance assistance materials for employers and workers, and to provide easily accessible, plain-language information to help guide them to compliance. This tool offers a new design - reformatted for laptops, tablets, and other mobile devices - and provides numerous additional resources and related information, including plain-language videos. It provides immediate access to materials employers frequently need, and allows users to tailor their experience by exploring available information at whatever level of detail they choose. This tool, in conjunction with worker.govemployer.gov, and other recently released online tools, aims to ensure greater understanding of federal labor laws and regulations.
