Guam - Ensuring employees and employers know their rights, the Department of Labor is gearing up for the 2012 Labor Law Compliance Conference. DOL director Leah Beth Nahalowaa says employees this Sunday will have the opportunity to learn from federal labor experts their rights while on the job. She hopes the conference addressed the complaints her agency gets daily from employees.

"Workers not getting paid on time, overtime not getting paid, sexual harassment, discrimination these kinds of complaints that we have been receiving everyday. So in order to help the businesses with the regulations we thought to bring the experts to brief them and update them on the latest," she said.

The employees' session is Sunday, February 5 at 1:30pm at the Ukudu Workforce Village in Harmon. The event is free. The conference will continue the following Monday and Tuesday for employers at the Sheraton Laguna Resort.

Registration for those events begin at 7:30am.
