On The Road


  • Law Alert: USDOL Releases Proposed Rule On Worker Status Under the Fair Labor Standards Act
    The U.S. Department of Labor released its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to Employee or Independent Contractor Classification Under the Fair Labor Standards Act. The proposal is expected to be published in the Federal Register on October 13, and the Department will accept comments for 45 days thereafter. As anticipated, the NPRM once again proposes to repeal the Department’s prior regulation on the same subject issued under the Trump administration (an earlier attempt at repeal was held improper by a federal district court) and replace it with a regulation it claims is more aligned with judicial precedent. Read more on this from Scopelitis.
