The Administrator of DOL’s Wage and Hour Division should develop a method for systematically aggregating and reviewing data on the reasons that complaints recorded in its enforcement database have been filed with no compliance action and the reasons cases have been dropped.
When we confirm what actions the agency has taken in response to this recommendation, we will provide updated information.” Access the full 57-page report here.
