About The Office of the Solicitor’s (SOL)

The Office of the Solicitor’s (SOL) mission is to meet the legal service demands of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). As the Secretary of Labor and other Department officials seek to accomplish the Department’s overall mission and further specific priorities, SOL provides legal advice regarding how to achieve those goals.

In doing so, SOL ensures the nation’s labor laws are forcefully and fairly applied and enforced to protect the Nation’s workers. The SOL National Office at our Washington, D.C., headquarters includes nine divisions that provide program advice and litigation services to Department agencies.
