The Division 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 Division by Chapter 938, Acts of 1945, as the
Department of Labor and Industry. It adopted its present name by
Chapter 402, Acts of 1970.
Under the direction of a Commissioner appointed by the Secretary
of Licensing and Regulation with the approval of the Governor, and
holding office at the pleasure of the Secretary, the Division enforces
laws and regulations affecting workers and employers and promotes
harmony between industry and labor through mediation and arbitra-
tion of labor disputes and the holding of consent collective bargaining
elections. In addition to offering the services of Apprenticeship and
Training, the Division is responsible for the enforcement of the
following laws: Occupational Safety, Wage and Hour, 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, Boiler Safety, High Voltage Line Act,
Licensing of Workshops, Licensing of Homeworkers, and the Licensing
and Regulation of Private, Fee Charging Employment Agencies (Code
