Administrative law concerns the regulations and rulings of administrative agencies. Administrative agencies exist on three levels:
- Federal level
- State level
- Local level
Congress can’t create statutes for every aspect of the law—it’s simply too much for them to handle. Instead, Congress delegates authority to administrative agencies so they can issue regulations, licenses, and permits for specific subject matters and industries.
Examples of Administrative Agencies in the United States
Many administrative agencies exist in the U.S.—a total of 432 are listed on the Federal Register’s official website. The Federal Register brands itself as “The Daily Journal of the United States Government.” It is updated daily and contains a myriad of information, such as Federal Register documents published since 1994.
Examples of administrative agencies include:
- Defense Department
- Disability Employment Policy Office
- Environmental Protection Agency
- Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
- Food and Nutrition Service
- Internal Revenue Service (commonly known as the IRS)
- National Resources Conservation Service
- Social Security Administration
- Workers’ Compensation Programs Office
How Do I File a Claim with an Administrative Agency?
Both individuals and companies can file claims against administrative agencies. If you wish to file such a claim, some of your reasons may include:
- You’ve been denied benefits to which you’re entitled.
- You’ve been issued unfair penalties.
- You’re facing issues related to obtaining or maintaining a permit or license.
You need an attorney knowledgeable in administrative law to guide you through this complex process. Administrative agencies function as quasi-governments in the sense that agencies can have individual sets of rules and procedures, especially when it comes to handling complaints and claims.
