Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development
The Department of Labor and Workforce Development is the state labor department that handles labor law related issues in Alaska. They are the first point of contact for Alaska employers and employees' labor law questions. Issues that are outside of the Department of Labor and Workforce Development's scope will be referred to the local office of the Federal Department of Labor. You can contact the Department of Labor and Workforce Development via these channels:

How can the Federal DOL and the Department of Labor and Workforce Development Help Me?
Both the Federal and State labor departments are here to help employees protect their rights under labor law, and help employers understand and maintain complaince with regulations.
If you are an employee and believe that your employer is violating labor law - for example, paying you less than the Alaska minimum wage or violating overtime pay laws - call your nearest Department of Labor office and they will be able to advise you of your rights and help you recover any owed wages.
Keep in mind that federal law prevents your employer from retaliating against you in any way for talking to the Department of Labor about potential labor law violations. In addition to the Alaska state contacts listed on this page, you can call the Federal DOL's national hotline from 8am to 5pm with questions at 1-866-4USWAGE (1-866-487-9243).
