As the summer comes to a close, USDOL’s continued momentum ensures a busy fall for employers. While we await the details, one thing is clear – employers should take these three steps right now.
USDOL has announced that it does not expect to address the FLSA white-collar exemptions (the so-called “overtime rule”) until March 2019 and has slotted "joint employment" for December 2018 instead.
USDOL's recent Field Assistance Bulletin outlines the factors to be considered when the agency is evaluating independent contractor status.
The U.S. Department of Labor has withdrawn two "Administrator Interpretations" dealing with joint-employment and independent-contractorship under the FLSA and other laws the agency enforces.
The U.S. Labor Department has released Administrator Interpretation No. 2016-1, dealing with concepts of "joint employment" under the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act.
