The U.S. Department of Labor issued the following announcement today:

Today, December 13, 2010, the Wage and Hour Division (WHD) and the American Bar Association began an unprecedented collaboration providing for an Attorney Referral System.  When Fair Labor Standards Act or Family and Medical Leave Act complainants are informed that the Wage and Hour Division is declining to pursue their complaints, they may also be given a toll-free number to contact the newly created ABA-Approved Attorney Referral System.  In addition, WHD will also provide prompt relevant information and documents on the case to complainants and representing attorneys.  Please visit the Attorney Referral System Webpage for more information on this collaboration.
