DOL Proposes to Withdraw Independent Contractor Rule

On March 12, 2021, the Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division is scheduled to propose withdrawing the Trump Administration's final rule regarding classification of workers as employees or independent contractors. The final rule had been a so-called "midnight regulation" and never went into effect. DOL will accept comments on its proposed withdrawal of the rule for 30 days and CWC intends to submit comments.
