DOL Announces Proposed Joint Employer Rule

From OMA Connections Partner Dinsmore: “On April 1, 2019, the Department of Labor (DOL) announced it will publish a notice of proposed rulemaking to amend its existing regulations, … , regarding whether a business qualifies as a joint employer under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The FLSA requires covered employers to pay nonexempt employees at least the federal minimum wage for all hours worked and overtime for all hours worked more than 40 in one workweek. The proposed rule would clarify when additional businesses are jointly and severally liable with the employer for the employee’s wages under the FLSA.”
