DOL Announces Final ‘Joint Employer’ Rule

If you share workers with other employers, engage independent contractors, or use staffing agencies to supplement your workforce, be aware the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has announced a final rule impacting joint employer status under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
