  • On Wednesday, June 07, 2017, the U.S. Department of Labor (“Department”) withdrew two “guidance letters” previously issued by the Department during the Obama administration. These guidance letters expressed a desire for “tighter standards” for determining joint employment, in an effort to limit the misclassification of workers as independent contractors.
