A free, virtual seminar on Federal Labor Laws and Workplace Rights for Advocates will be taking place on July 28th, 2021, in English. See below for more information.

Federal Labor Laws and Workplace Rights Webinar for Advocates One of WHD's main objectives is educating worker advocates and others who regularly interact with at-risk workers, enabling them to more effectively guide workers who need WHD assistance. Exploited workers, for a variety of reasons, may not contact DOL or are hesitant to do so, making it difficult to get them the information and help they need.

Join this webinar to help close this gap between workers who need help and the federal agency that is charged with ensuring their workplace rights. WHD enforces labor laws in the U.S. regardless of a worker’s immigration status.
