Labor Law

U.S. Department of Labor
http://www.dol.gov

As the Department of Labor's (DOL) web site is quite extensive, it is best to view the sitemap for an overview of the organizational structure and searching methods. The web page provides primary labor law sources, including statutes and regulations. A variety of agency information is available, including administrative decisions. Also contained are various statistical data, press releases and links to other labor sites.

Bureau of Labor Statistics
http://stats.bls.gov

Statistical material can be accessed under the link to "Data". This resource is fully searchable and users can utilize search parameters to create customized databases from statistical sources. The Occupational Handbook, fully searchable, and other publications and research papers are available. Also of interest is The Economy at a Glance link, where you can view a region, state, or metropolitan area's economy by clicking on a map of the United States.

National Labor Relations Board
http://www.nlrb.gov

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) provides weekly summaries of the Board's activities and public notices. Each week's NLRB decisions in unfair labor practices and representation election cases are summarized, except for summary judgment cases. All decisions of NLRB administrative law judges are provided. Most useful are the NLRB decisions available in PDF format beginning with volume 308 and also the Board's rules and regulations. Links to the various NLRB field offices sites are available.

AFL-CIO
http://www.aflcio.org

This site includes links to unions and other labor organizations. There are links to sites providing information on issues of concern to women, a collection of speeches, press releases and testimony. Of interest is information on how to become a trained union organizer, and information on Stop the Pain, a campaign to improve job site ergonomics and protect workers suffering from workplace injuries.
