A Discussion with Hilda Solis: DOL Sets 2010 Priorities

Download whitepapers "The Wage and Hour Division must expand its efforts to ensure that workers are employed in compliance with the laws we enforce. Our 2011 budget request for an additional $12 million and 90 new investigators will help us to achieve this." -- Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis

On February 24, 2009, Hilda L. Solis was confirmed as the Secretary of Labor. In this FREE HR Hero White Paper, Solis reveals the DOL's top priorities for 2010, including new wage & hour enforcement initiatives, the new "Misclassification Initiative" and the industries the Department is planning to target for violations.

In this in-depth interview, Solis lays out the five top priorities for the DOL this year:
  • Significantly reduce fatalities resulting from the most common causes by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)-covered workplaces and mining sites.
  • Reduce the number of repeat violators of minimum wage, overtime, and workplace safety laws.
  • Improve worker rights and livelihoods for vulnerable populations in developing-country trading partners.
  • Create a program to help workers injured on the job return to work so that they can continue to be productive members of America's workforce.
  • Increase opportunities for America's workers to acquire the skills and knowledge to succeed in a knowledge based economy.
