Department of Labor investigates, prosecutes, tries, and punishes

How could it be that the same department that finds and prosecutes labor problems can also be judge, jury, and executioner?  Oracle is challenging the Labor Department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance legal authority to judge its own cases.  This has wider implications for all employers and hopefully the power will ultimately go back to the Justice system.  In the interim, it is good to know that these things can be challenged – and hopefully we’ll have the right precedence soon.
