Labor Standards Enforcement Series

Labor Standards Enforcement Series

This brief and webinar series was done in partnership with the Center for Innovation in Worker Organization (CIWO). It highlights promising practices and innovative ideas for implementing and enforcing labor standards. The briefs and corresponding webinars provide examples of how to successfully leverage partnerships between agencies, community-based organizations, and the private bar as well as insights for advocates seeking to improve the legislative tools available to enforce laws.


This brief is the fourth tool in our Labor Standards Enforcement Toolbox. This brief describes strategic enforcement and offers techniques for prioritizing and directing outreach and enforcement efforts to where the problems are largest, workers are least likely to exercise their legal rights, and agencies can impact industry-wide compliance. 

This brief is the third tool in our Labor Standards Enforcement Toolbox. This brief includes strategies for collecting and getting money in workers' pockets once the agency determines they're owed wages.

This brief is the second tool in our Labor Standards Enforcement Toolbox. The brief addresses the nuts and bolts of enforcement and offers strategies for ensuring the biggest impact given an agency’s resources.

This brief is the first tool in our Labor Standards Enforcement Toolbox. This brief addresses the triage and processing of complaints and conducting investigations.
