HARRISBURG, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry’s (L&I) Bureau of Labor Law Compliance released data related to COVID-19 enforcement actions for Dec. 14 to 18. The information is specific to COVID-19 mitigation efforts related to businesses that are not covered by other state agencies, boards, or bureaus.

L&I completed investigations on 123 complaints between Dec. 14 and 18. These cases were sent back to the Department of Health (DOH). The Bureau of Labor Law Compliance has 250 cases assigned to it.

L&I is assisting the DOH in investigating employee complaints that their employers are violating COVID safety orders issued by Governor Tom Wolf and Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine. L&I serves as the point of receipt for workplace-related complaints and works with DOH to investigate the complaints and seek appropriate remedies. The majority of business owners and operators are choosing to comply with the COVID safety orders because they know the importance of keeping workers safe from this virus.
