Legal Division

The Legal Division of the Arkansas Department of Labor handles all legal matters on behalf of the Director, including advising each division on such matters as the interpretation and application of state and federal law. The staff attorneys have the responsibility of reviewing proposed legislation and drafting administrative regulations. They also serve as a source of information for the public and other state agencies regarding Arkansas' labor laws.

Individual wage claims, together with violations of state minimum wage and overtime laws, child labor laws, and prevailing wage laws constitute much of the litigation handled by this division. In addition, court action may be initiated for the enforcement of the state's safety laws and laws regulating such operations as boilers, elevators, and private employment agencies.
