DOL, EEOC and NLRB Announce Joint Initiative to Raise Awareness about Retaliation Issues


MOU will enable the agencies to work together to protect workers on issues of unlawful retaliatory conduct

On November 10, 2021, the Office of the Solicitor announced a joint relationship between the Department of Labor (DOL), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to protect workers on issues of unlawful retaliatory conduct, educate the public and engage with employers, business organizations, labor organizations and civil rights groups.

The initiative will build on the work of Memoranda of Understandings (MOU) between the agencies, and strength interagency relationships.  The agencies have a dual mandate: (1) enforcing laws that protect workers who exercise their workplace rights and (2) helping employers understand their responsibilities under federal workplace laws.
