The DOL just enlisted the help of two more states to help it root out employee misclassification. Will your state be the next one to join the growing list?
California and Louisiana recently became the 12th and 13th states, respectively, to sign a memorandum of understanding with the DOL.
The memorandum – which is part of the DOL’s Misclassification Initiative – allows the agency and participating states to share info and coordinate enforcement efforts with each other.
The information sharing is supposed to make it easier for the DOL to prevent employee misclassification.
In addition to California and Louisiana, CO, CT, HI, IL, MD, MA, MN, MO, MT, UT and WA have also signed memorandums of understanding with the DOL.
