The Department of Labor and Industry, established by Chapter 211,
Acts of 1884, as the Bureau of Statistics and Information, is one of the
oldest governmental agencies in this field in the United States, ante-
dating the U. S. Department of Labor by one year. After 1892, the
Department was known as the Industrial Bureau. A reorganization
in 1916 renamed it the State Board of Labor and Statistics, and con-
centrated in it powers to enforce all the factory acts. The General
Assembly made further changes by Chapter 747, Acts of 1939, and
created the present Department by Chapter 938, Acts of 1945.
Under the direction of a Commissioner appointed by the Governor
for a four-year term, the Department enforces laws and regulations
affecting workers and employers and promotes harmony between
industry and labor through mediation and arbitration of labor dis-
putes and the holding of consent elections. In addition to offering the
services of Apprenticeship and Training, the Department is respon-
sible for the enforcement of the following laws: Occupational Safety,
Minimum Wage, Wage Payment and Collection, Equal Pay for Equal
Work, Child Labor, Hours of Labor for Females, Work.Hours of in
Factories, Factory Inspection and Industrial Registration, and Boiler
Inspection, High Voltage Line Act, Age Discrimination in Employ-
ment, Prevailing Wages on Public Contracts, Licensing of Workshops,
Licensing of Homeworkers, and the Licensing and Regulation of
Private, Fee Charging Employment Agencies (Code, 1957, 1967 Repl.
