OSHA's Worker Rights and Protections

Increase Investigations and Reporting

Description of Idea :

DOL should increase inspections by WHD and OSHA teams and train all inspectors on identification of possible signs of labor trafficking. All potential trafficking should be shared with appropriate law enforcement partners for investigation and possible prosecution. DOL should coordinate with DHS to provide Continued Presence for all immigrant workers at these workplaces that are identified as potential labor trafficking, in order to protect the workers during the investigation and possible prosecution.
