Dept. of Labor to finalize joint employment, 'regular rate' rules

The department in a rulemaking agenda published on Wednesday said a rule that is likely to exclude wellness incentives, payouts for accrued leave, tuition reimbursements and other types of pay from workers’ regular rate will come as soon as this month, and the rule on so-called “joint employment” under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) will be issued in December.
