Freedom of Information Act
Like all federal agencies, the
Department of Labor (DOL) is required under the Freedom of Information Act
(FOIA) to disclose records requested in writing by any person. However,
agencies may withhold information pursuant to nine exemptions and three
exclusions contained in the statute. FOIA applies only to federal agencies and
does not create a right of access to records held by Congress, the courts, or
by state or local government agencies.
