How do I contact the Department of Labour
To contact the Department of Labour Contact Centre for workplace enquiries call 0800 20 90 20 or go to the Department’s contact page.
Information officers at the Department’s Contact Centre are experienced in helping with day-to-day problems in workplaces. They can also help interpret the minimum legal employment conditions. In most cases, information officers can give you information to help you deal with your problem yourself by providing facts and commonsense suggestions.
If your question requires more assistance, information officers can help you to decide which process will help you deal with the problem. They may refer you to other services established under the Employment Relations Act, or may provide information on other government agencies such as the Human Rights Commission or other parts of the Department of Labour.
The service is free, and your call is always confidential.
