Retraction Doesn’t Change the Reality of Misclassification

The former Administrator of the US Department of Labor astutely notes that the retraction of the guidance issued under his watch “changed nothing in terms of employer responsibilities ā€” the law is still the law.” For now! But, he adds, “it did potentially signal an intention to move away from addressing worker misclassification as a fundamental problem worth addressing.” Yeah, I think it’s more that they’re saying it’s not a problem, and my guess is that we’ll see them say that in future amicus filings too.
