Is The Department of Labor Holding Back Wages for You?

The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) administers and enforces some of our nation’s most comprehensive labor laws. Through enforcement and other administrative actions, WHD recovers back wages on behalf of employees. WHD makes every effort to locate and notify all employees due back wages. If WHD is unsuccessful in locating an employee, the back wages are held for three years before being sent to the U.S. Treasury.

If you are an employee, and you think that the Department of Labor, Wage & Hour Division might have sued one of your former employers and recovered money for you and a plantload of your co-workers, you can find out for sure at the department's website:


We didn't check for ourselves, since we know that Walsh & Walsh, P.C.'s employees don't have any claims.
