  • What's in the White Paper?

    On September 8, 2020, U.S. District Judge Gregory Woods in the Southern District of New York (NY Court) struck down a significant portion of the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) most recent promulgation of the joint employment rule under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The portion that was struck down – technically called the “vertical” joint employment rule – had only been in effect for about 6 months.

    This white paper will explain the ramifications of the NY Court’s decision; raise awareness about an oft misinterpreted approach to joint employment in the contingent labor world; and recommend best practices for buyers, suppliers, and managed service providers to mitigate joint employment risk.
