O’Melveny’s KohSweeney Quoted in Law360 on New Department of Labor Guidance

July 16, 2015 O’Melveny & Myers’ partner Adam KohSweeney discussed the recent US Department of Labor’s guidance on the classification of workers under the Fair Labor Standards Act in the July 15, 2015, Law360 article “Attorneys React To DOL Misclassification Guidance.” “The DOL guidance is not a regulation made pursuant to notice and comment rulemaking and only reflects the DOL’s enforcement stance,” KohSweeney said in the article. “The DOL’s attempts to de-emphasize the 'control' test, and emphasize the integral part of the employer’s business test, are likely to be a focal point of future litigation.”

KohSweeney is a partner in O'Melveny's San Francisco office and a member of the Labor and Employment Practice.
