DOL Issues Proposed Rule Revising “Regular Rate” Requirements

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has issued a proposed rule revising “regular rate” requirements employers must follow under section 7(e) of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

DOL’s Overtime Rule to be Published in the Federal Register

Today, the U.S. Department of Labor published in the Federal Register its recently announced notice of proposed rulemaking on overtime.  The proposed regulations increase the salary threshold below which workers must be paid overtime—regardless of their job duties—from $455 a week ($23,660 per year) to $679 per week ($35,308 per year).

Construction Industry Tax Fraud Costs Taxpayers $2.6 Billion Annually

A new estimate from Smart Cities Prevail finds that 1.2 million construction workers are paid off the books each year.  Another 300,000 are misclassified as independent contractors when they are really employees.  These unlawful practices cost state and federal taxpayers at least $2.6 billion annually in lost federal income and employment taxes, and state income taxes. 

SWACCA strongly supports efforts to curb employee misclassification and off-the-books payment schemes in the construction industry.  These fraudulent practices create an unlevel playing field for legitimate employers at the expense of United States taxpayers.
