Department of Labor Issues ‘Joint Employer’ Guidance

Filed in Codes and Regulations, Construction Industry, Legal by on February 19, 2016 0 Comments

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently issued an Administrator’s Interpretation (AI) to help business owners better understand the concept of joint employment under the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act.

The NAHB Office of Legal Affairs examined the AI and what it might mean for members, their employees and subs. Read the summary here, and contact David Jaffe with your questions.
