The Department of Labor (DOL) was created by act of March 4, 1913. The Bureau of Labor eventually became self-regulating as a Department of Labor without executive rank. It returned to bureau status in the Department of Commerce and Labor, which was created in February of 1903. The department is headed by the U.S. Secretary of Labor.

The Department of Labor (DOL) promotes and develops the welfare of the wage earners of the United States to help improve their working conditions and progress their opportunities for profitable employment. The Department governs Federal labor laws guaranteeing workers’ rights to safe and healthy working conditions, unemployment insurance, freedom from employment discrimination, a minimum hourly wage, and workers' compensation.

The Department of Labor also provides for job training programs to help workers find jobs. As the Department seeks to support all Americans who need and want to work, special efforts are also made to meet the job market problems of minority groups, youth, women, older workers, and the handicapped. The Department of Labor consists of various agencies including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA), and the Wage and Hour Division (WHD) just to name a few.
