Share
Update Effective: March 11, 2024

On January 10, 2024, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) released a final rule, effective March 11, 2024, that revises their prior guidance on how employers should analyze whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). 

This analysis includes the following factors: opportunity for profit or loss depending on managerial skill, investments by the worker and the potential employer, the degree of permanence of the work relationship, the nature and degree of control, the extent to which the work performed is an integral part of the potential employer's business, and skill and initiative.

Employers can read more on the final rule and analysis here.  Employers should seek legal counsel if they have any questions regarding their classification of workers.

Update Effective: TBD

On December 4, 2023, the Federal Acquisition Regulatory Counsel (FAR) submitted a “Pay Equity and Transparency in Federal Contracting” proposal to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval. 

On January 11, 2024, the OMB approved this proposal and the FAR subsequently released the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM).

The proposed rule would generally prohibit contractors and subcontractors from inquiring about salary history for job applicants working on or in connection with a government contract. It would also require contractors and subcontractors to disclose the compensation and benefits in job postings involving work on or in connection with a government contract.

Employers should remain close to updates as the proposed rule goes through the final review process.
