Welcome to the N.C. Department of Labor’s website. We strive to make North Carolina a safe and healthy place to live and work. Through its various bureaus, the Labor Department touches nearly every North Carolinian's life, from boiler safety and elevator safety to workplace safety and health.
We hope that you will find the resources that you need on our website. In addition to labor rules and regulations, the department offers a variety of free training resources on safety and health. Take a few minutes to see if some of our services might benefit you. You also can reach us toll-free at 1-800-NC-LABOR (1-800-625-2267).
A commissioner of labor is elected every four years as head of the department and also serves on the Council of State. Labor Commissioner Cherie Berry is now in her fourth term. The commissioner has broad regulatory and enforcement powers to carry out the department's duties and responsibilities.
Thanks again for visiting the N.C. Department of Labor.
