The Office of WageHour of the Department of Employment Services (DOES) administers the District’s laws regarding wages and hours.
The Office of WageHour also implements the WageHour Rules, which provide, for example, subminimum wage rates for newly hired workers and reasonable allowance levels for workrelated situations. The Office of WageHour conducts compliance audits and may recover back wages for employees, either administratively or through court action.
