In a recent blog post, Harris said the Department remains committed to its goal of Good Jobs for Everyone, which includes ensuring compliance with employment laws and making sure employers keep workplaces safe, healthy, and free of discrimination.

“As President Obama’s second term begins, our mission to help working families has never been more important, and we are moving forward to fulfill that mission with renewed energy and purpose,” he said. Harris will work with DOL leadership to develop new tools and strategies for carrying out the mission.
