“The U.S. Labor Department sent a proposed rule on independent contractor status to the White House regulatory review office, setting in motion the Trump administration’s effort to complete the high-priority rulemaking by year’s end. The regulation would determine whether a worker is an independent contractor or an employee who qualifies for minimum wage and overtime protections. DOL transmitted it Friday to the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, which will now conduct a legal and economic analysis before it can be cleared for public release.”
