FMLA Complaint: How to File a Complaint with US DOL Wage and Hour
Workers Owed Wages Portal: The U.S. DOL Wage and Hour Division (WHD) makes every effort to locate and notify all employees due back wages. If they cannot find an employee, they hold their back wages for three years while they continue to try and locate the employee. If you think you may be owed back wages collected by the WHD you can search their database of workers for whom they have money waiting to be claimed.
