Greater Rochester Chamber Friday HR Briefing

The rules for who is considered an independent contractor under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) have changed – again. Effective March 11, 2024, the Department of Labor (DOL) will return to its pre-Trump era guidance, and will focus on the “economic reality” of a situation to determine whether a worker is properly classified as an independent contractor or an employee. Phillips Lytle attorneys Kevin Mulvehill and Mark Pincelli explained the rules as they were, what they are now, and what the implications are for employers moving forward.
