Employment Relations Division

The Employment Relations Division provides a wide variety of service and regulation related to the employer – employee relationship. This includes issues involving workers' compensation coverage and claims, human rights claims, workplace safety and health, wage and hour claims, prevailing wage claims, and public sector collective bargaining.

We provide education and technical assistance to employers in understanding and complying with state labor laws. This division works with both employers and employees to resolve disputes that do arise in the employment relationship through informal investigations and mediation. It is our goal to help resolve disputes at the lowest level possible in a timely, efficient, and cost effective manner.
