Understanding the DOL's new independent contractor rule

The U.S. Department of Labor created a new rule on January 10, 2024. This rule affects how workers are classified as independent contractors under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). This rule, published the prior day in the Federal Register, took effect on March 11, 2024. 

How confident are you that you have properly classified your employees? Don’t risk the fines, penalties, legal problems and damage to your organization's reputation that misclassification can result in.
