This week, we’re getting up close and personal with the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and the contentious new rules that it is rushing to put into effect.

The DOL’s New Rules and Rising Challenges

The DOL is racing ahead with its agenda, with several rules that could change the landscape for employers, such as new workplace inspection policies and requirements for determining fiduciary status.

Epstein Becker Green attorney Paul DeCamp tells us more about the recent pushback against the DOL and recounts his testimony to the U.S. House Subcommittee on Workforce Protections regarding the DOL’s proposed overtime rule.
