Labor Hall of Fame Law and Legal Definition

The Labor Hall of Fame was founded in 1988 to honor posthumously those Americans whose distinctive contributions to the field of labor have enhanced the quality of life of America's workers. Honorees are chosen each year, and a formal induction ceremony is conducted at the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) in Washington, D.C.

Elevation to the Labor Hall of Fame is arrived at by a selection panel composed of the Counselor in the Office of the Secretary, the Solicitor of Labor, the Assistant Secretary for Policy, and the Assistant Secretary for Administration and Management. The Labor Hall of Fame is located inside the North Plaza of DOL's Frances Perkins Building on 200 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C.
