All ideas are welcome, but the DOL is specifically looking for input to help ensure that:
- Everyone has equal access to unemployment insurance;
- Federal contractors and subcontractors doing business with the Federal Government do not discriminate against protected workers;
- DOL's Wage and Hour Division enforcement sufficiently captures wage-related issues for underrepresented groups; and
