  Labor Department Enhances Online Compliance Assistance
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has launched a new Compliance Assistance Web Portal, designed to help members of the regulated community understand and comply with federal employment laws and regulations administered by DOL.

Located at www.dol.gov/compliance, the redesigned Compliance Assistance Portal is an enhanced, more user-friendly version of DOL’s previous compliance assistance Web site.  A central gateway to “all things compliance assistance,” the intuitive portal directs users to easy-to-navigate information including e-tools, fact sheets on a variety of employment law issues, regulatory text, frequently asked questions and a wealth of additional compliance assistance information provided by DOL’s agencies.

The portal also features an improved navigation scheme to allow searches for compliance information “by topic” and “by audience;” users need not know the name of a particular law to locate key information.  For more information, visit http://www.dol.gov/opa/media/press/opa/OPA20051849.htm.
