U.S. Department of Labor (DoL) Proposes Rule Aimed to Clarify Independent Contractor Eligibility

The U.S. DoL issued a proposed rule that would provide new factors to consider when employers are determining a worker's “independent contractor” status, under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The Department's attempt to place new federal guidelines around independent contractor status comes as California and several other states are also actively addressing the matter via legislation.

USTC J9 Conditions-Based Movement Call (29 Sep)

The Tuesday, 29 September USTC J9 Conditions Based Movement call, started off with an update on DPS. Some DPS users were having issues with errors. J9 stated the issue caused by a DISA Server failure. DISA restored service.
