The OAG recently launched an aggressive, comprehensive effort to hold abusive employers accountable and ensure that workers receive the wages they are owed. The OAG has also launched free resources to empower workers to protect themselves, including a wage and hour log book to help workers document their pay and hours worked, as well as comprehensive information about the District’s wage and hour laws. OAG’s new worker resources are also available in Spanish.
