The Enforcement Database includes records from the department's Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), and Wage and Hour Division (WHD).

In the case of the WHD, the database includes all concluded WHD compliance actions since fiscal year 2009. The results show whether any violations were found and the back wage amount, the number of employees due back wages, and the fines assessed. The data is updated quarterly.

The public can search the database by agency, state, zip code, North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code, and Standard Industrial Classification code.

The WHD enforces the federal minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and child labor requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The division also enforces the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act, the Employee Polygraph Protection Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, wage garnishment provisions of the Consumer Credit Protection Act, and a number of employment standards and worker protections as provided in several immigration related statutes.
