Welcome to Iowa Department of Labor

Welcome to the Iowa Division of Labor

Michael A. Mauro
Labor Commissioner

The Iowa Division of Labor protects the safety, health and economic security of Iowans. Our programs protect people who ride on elevators, escalators and amusement rides. We protect the people who are in a building with a boiler or a pressure vessel, or an asbestos abatement project. We protect employees from dangers in the workplace and protect the right of an employee to be paid.  We protect Iowa's children from dangers in workplaces, and limit their hours of work so they can focus on education.

Workers' Memorial Day Ceremony
Friday, April 28th
11:00 a.m.
State Capitol
West Terrace

The Unions of the AFL-CIO set aside a day each year as Workers' Memorial Day. This is a day to honor and remember Iowans who in the past year have died in Iowa’s workplaces and serving in our Military. This is also a day to reflect on the lives that were lost and to renew our commitment to safe and healthy workplaces for all of Iowans.
