Department of Labor targets misclassification of workers

In its fiscal year 2012 budget request, the Department of Labor (DOL) is asking for $46 million to combat worker misclassification through a new multi-agency initiative that would include the DOL’s Wage and Hour Division, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Office of the Solicitor, and the Employment and Training Administration. The DOL’s “Misclassification Initiative” is aimed at boosting federal and state efforts to enforce labor violations resulting from worker misclassification, as well as deterring violations.
