DOL Plans to Revise FLSA Joint Employment Rule

On February 23, 2021, the Department of Labor sent a draft of proposed revisions to regulations interpreting the Fair Labor Standards Act's joint employment provisions to the White House Office of Management and Budget for review. The Trump Administration finalized its revisions to the regulations in January 2020, although they were immediately challenged in federal court. This is the first substantive proposed rule sent from DOL to OMB during the Biden Administration.
