Employment Law This Week (February 1, 2016) has released bonus footage of its interview with Michael D. Thompson, a Member of the Firm at Epstein Becker Green.

As Mr. Thompson discusses, the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division issued an Administrator’s Interpretation with new guidelines for joint employers under the FLSA and Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act. The Division makes it clear that it believes employers are regularly part of joint employment relationships with their vendors and business partners. If an employee files a claim or lawsuit and a joint-employment relationship is found, both employers can be found liable for violations.
