Labor Department Mission, Vision & Values
The mission of the Oklahoma Department of Labor is to help ensure fairness, equity and safety in Oklahoma workplaces through ethical behavior, conscientious guidance and loyal service to Oklahoma's employers and employees.
The Commissioner of Labor is charged with preserving, protecting and promoting the welfare of the wage earner. Oklahoma's workers are our state's greatest asset. Each has the right to work in an environment that is fair, equitable, healthy and safe.
This Agency serves as an advocate for employees, employers and the public. We believe in value-added change and we provide a forum where all constituent interests can be heard. We believe in government reform, when necessary, to provide benefits and opportunities for employees.
ODOL employees provide professional guidance and services, supported by education and training. Our services include the necessary relief, regulation and resolution for employees, employers and the public.
We provide consultation, regulation, enforcement and education information for employers, generating opportunities for everyone to work in an environment that is fair, equitable, healthy and safe. Each individual we serve is treated fairly with personal attention.
ODOL employees work in harmony, respectful of others, in an open and honest manner. We are loyal to our mission while performing our duty to serve the public. Our integrity is the cornerstone of our public service and we are good stewards of public trust.
Our continually improving work environment serves as a model workplace.
