Andrea Kirshenbaum Provides a Wage and Hour Update for The Legal Intelligencer
In the October 30, 2018 article, "Joint Employment, Compliance and Overtime: A Wage-and-Hour Update," for The Legal Intelligencer, Wage and Hour Practice Chair Andrea M. Kirshenbaum provided an overview of compliance initiatives related to wages from both the federal and state government perspectives.
The author notes:
"From the creation of the Office of Compliance Initiatives, to the six-month extension of the payroll audit independent determination pilot program, to the issuance of multiple new opinion letters and field assistance bulletins, the Department of Labor (DOL) and its Wage and Hour Division (WHD) have been busy at work. Also on the horizon over the next several months, and of significant interest to employers, are proposed regulations regarding joint employment, the regular rate of pay and the salary threshold for the Fair Labor Standards Act’s (FLSA) “white-collar” exemptions."
