"Feds Targeting Companies for Misclassifying Their Workers," Atlanta Business Chronicle
On July 24, 2015, the Atlanta Business Chronicle interviewed Randy C. Gepp for its article, “Feds Targeting Companies for Misclassifying Their Workers.” The article examines the U.S. Department of Labor’s memorandum clarifying when companies should treat a worker as an employee under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and when that worker should be classified as an independent contractor. Mr. Gepp provides examples of activities included under the memorandum, including the use of social media by employees on their own time, union elections and rules governing discrimination against pregnant women. “They’re taking a very activist and pro-employee viewpoint,” Mr. Gepp adds.
