The Wage & Hour Program administers and enforces wage protection laws in Michigan (the Payment of Wages and Fringe Benefits Act, the Minimum Wage Act, and the Prevailing Wages on State Projects Act).

The program investigates complaints alleging non-payment of wages and fringe benefits, state minimum wage, overtime, equal pay, and prevailing wage disputes.  The Wage & Hour Program also educates employers and employees in the areas covered by these labor standards.
