On January 10, 2024, the U.S. Department of Labor published a new rule for determining whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor, which became effective March 11, 2024. This new rule rescinded a previous rule on this issue published on January 7, 2021. Classification of a worker as an employee or independent contractor is an important issue, as it impacts minimum wage requirements, overtime pay, and other worker protections. Professor Justin Blount will explain this new rule, and the impact it may have on how your business classifies its workers.
