If during an unfair labor practice investigation an NLRB agent learns of facts that suggest that an employer has violated the FLSA or the OSH Act, the agent has been instructed to advise the complaining employee (or witness) of his right to file charges with OSHA and/or the Wage and Hour Division, both of which are agencies within the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).
