(a) Any worker, contractor, labor organization, trade organization, contracting agency,
or other person or entity that believes a violation of the Executive Order or this
part has occurred may file a complaint with any office of the Wage and Hour Division. No particular form of complaint is required. A complaint may be filed orally or in writing. If the complainant is unable to file the complaint in English, the Wage and Hour
Division will accept the complaint in any language.
(b) It is the policy of the Department of Labor to protect the identity of its confidential
sources and to prevent an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. Accordingly, the identity of any individual who makes a written or oral statement
as a complaint or in the course of an investigation, as well as portions of the statement
which would reveal the individual's identity, shall not be disclosed in any manner
to anyone other than Federal officials without the prior consent of the individual. Disclosure of such statements shall be governed by the provisions of the Freedom
of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552, see 29 CFR part 70) and the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a).
