Department of Labor
DOL has made available information such as forms, news stories, frequently asked questions and publications, but locating the information can be difficult as the web site is not organized well. The best way to find something is by clicking on the link called "search/A-Z index." Start with the A-Z index, located on the left side of the page as the search feature is quirky. The index contains links to main portions of the DOL's web site. Once you go to one of these sections, many times there is an index for just that portion of the DOL's site.

By using the search feature or clicking on links information on businesses ("where you live"); laws, regulations and case information ("laws, regulations and dockets"); news ("EPA Newsroom") and in-depth publications ("educational resources") can be found.
Government Printing Office Access
The Government Printing Office is responsible for printing and disseminating much of the information the federal government publishes.
