US DOL App & Your Government Dollars at Work

Ever wanted to have an app from the U.S. Department Labor on your smartphone?  You can finally make your dream come true.

There’s now an app that helps customers identify for that.  The U. S. Department of Labor is getting into the mobile applications game with something called Eat, Shop, Sleep.  This app and several others were the winners in a contest sponsored by DOL aimed at crowdsourcing creative ways to put technology and goverment information to work as part of their enforcement mission.  The creator of this app received a $15,000 prize for her efforts.  Similar to Yelp, users can leave reviews of hotels, restaurants, and stores including employees.  Just how the DOL will use, manage, and control this app is left to be seen.  In 2011, the U.S. DOL released their first app called DOL Timesheet.  You can read a review here.  Many of their apps are offered in Spanish options.

Here’s what the Department of Labor app will allow you to do (description below):

Looking for a popular restaurant nearby? A hotel without code violations to stay at? Eat Sleep Shop for your iPhone/iPad can help. Search for places to eat, shop & sleep and then read customer reviews as well as health, safety & labor highlights.

Department of Labor App Features Include

● Search restaurants, shops, and hotels near you

● Narrow your results by industry, health/labor violations, name search

● Look up addresses and phone numbers for thousands of businesses, then call or map them from your iPhone/iPad

● Browse customer reviews to read what’s great (and not so great) in your city

● View health/labor info from the Department of Labor on businesses at a glance on the U.S. map

Employees, Yelp, Product, and Customer Reviews

If you work in the service and hopsitality industry, you might want to download this puppy  (click here) and see what it has to say about your company.  Have you downloaded the Department of Labor App?  Have you been involved in a situation when an employee posted negative reviews on Yelp, Google, or other consumer review tool?  How do you think the DOL is planning to use this app.  Would love to hear your impressions and thoughts by leaving the comments.
