Employment Law This Week (Episode 85: Week of August 28, 2017) has released bonus footage of its interview with Paul DeCamp, a Member of the Firm at Epstein Becker Green.
As Mr. DeCamp discusses, vacancies at the Department of Labor (“DOL”) are delaying policy changes under the new administration. Nearly half of the leadership positions at the DOL are still vacant, and Labor Secretary Acosta was not confirmed until late April. Neither the Wage Hour Division nor OSHA has a permanent Administrator. The DOL has taken some action, like rescinding guidance on misclassification of employees as independent contractors, but little progress has been made toward new overtime regulations or expanded use of the E-Verify system.
