Biden Administration Repeals Trump-Era Independent Contractor Rule, Signals Change to Joint Employer Rule

May 31, 2021
Jessica Ewert - Lewis Brisbois Newsroom

This week, the Department of Labor (DOL) repealed the Trump Administration’s independent contractor rule under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The DOL has also proposed the rescission of the Trump Administration’s joint employer rule and sent a new proposed regulation to the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) for review. Both moves signal a return to standards more likely to find an employment relationship.
