Jerry Hathaway Quoted in SHRM on DOL Opinion Letters

New York partner Jerry Hathaway was quoted in an SHRM article titled “FLSA/FMLA and Travel-Time Opinion Letters Clarify the Law.” The article covers two recent opinion letters issued by the Department of Labor (DOL).

The first opinion letter states that employers do not need to pay nonexempt workers on Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) breaks. Jerry noted that this letter is the first department decision in a long time that works against the interests of hourly workers.

The second letter provided guidance to employers in determining whether travel time is compensable for nonexempt workers who don’t work regular hours, noting that employers may use one of three methods to approximate employees’ normal working hours.
