This page will help you request records from the Department of Labor.
Under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) anyone can request access to federal agency records. Like all federal agencies, we must disclose records requested in writing, but we may withhold records in full or in part under one of FOIA's exemptions and exclusions.

COVID-19’s Impact on Our Response Times
As the COVD-19 pandemic continues, the processing of some FOIA requests may be delayed due to our inability to access responsive paper files onsite or at a National Archives and Records Administration's administered Federal Records Center. To ensure the fastest response, please submit FOIA requests and appeals through our Public Access Portal, the National FOIA Portal, or by email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Responses to FOIA requests and appeals received through other methods may be delayed.
