Prepping for DOL’s new employee/contractor rule? Call your lawyer first!


The Department of Labor’s recently released final rule on employee/independent contractor classification is scheduled to take effect March 11. Maybe it will, maybe it won’t. A lawsuit has already been filed to stop the DOL from enforcing the rule, and more litigation could be coming. However, it’s smart to plan now to begin complying with the rule’s six-part economic realities test to determine whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor.
