New Compliance Assistance Web Portal at DOL

Posted by in Federal News | Comments Off on New Compliance Assistance Web Portal at DOL

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has announced its new Compliance Assistance Web Portal, designed to help regulated businesses understand and comply with federal employment laws and regulations administered by DOL.

The redesigned Compliance Assistance Portal is an enhanced, more user-friendly version of the department’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.

In addition, users will find links to the compliance assistance mailbox, compliancehelp@dol.gov, and to a compliance assistance e-mail subscription service which updates subscribers by e-mail every time there is significant compliance news.

Since the portal also allows searches for compliance information “by topic” and “by audience;” users need not know the name of a particular law to locate key information. Unlike the previous compliance assistance Web site, the new portal guides users to information outside DOL’s jurisdiction. For example, even though DOL doesn’t regulate certain equal opportunity laws, it will direct a user to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission when appropriate. The site will also inform the user if there is no federal law that covers a particular issue.
