Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Wage and Hour Division to provide public service through the fair, effective, and efficient administration of laws which protect the wages and fringe benefits of Michigan’s workers and  ensure compliance with the requirement that certain entities post notices related to human trafficking.

What we do . . . 

The administration and enforcement of wage protection laws in Michigan (the Payment of Wages and Fringe Benefits Act, the Workforce Opportunity Wage Act, and the Prevailing Wages on State Projects Act) and the Human Trafficking Notification Act is the role of the Wage and Hour Division.

The division investigates complaints alleging non-payment of wages and fringe benefits, state minimum wage, overtime, equal pay, prevailing wage disputes and not displaying human trafficking notifications. The Wage and Hour Division also educates employers and employees in the areas covered by these labor standards.
