Last week, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (“WHD”) issued three new opinion letters, which we reported on briefly here. Opinion letters provide the agency’s view of the law in specific situations, as requested by employers or other parties. The letters are not legally binding but are instead intended to offer employers guidance on how the WHD interprets and would enforce the law based on the circumstances provided. These are the first WHD opinion letters released by the Trump administration. Today, we’re going to dive a little deeper into two of these letters and what they mean for employers.
