Update: DOL Officially Delays Newly Published Rule on Independent Contractors

Update: The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has officially delayed implementation of its new independent contractor rule. The rule will now take effect on May 7, 2021, instead of the original date of March 8. The 60-day delay is in accordance with the White House’s regulatory freeze issued in January. Although delaying the effective date of the new rule will provide the DOL with an additional opportunity for review, it is not necessarily an indication that the DOL intends to change the substance of the rule.  If any such changes are made, we will post an additional update here, along with a new blog post discussing them.
