Partner Bruce Steen, member of the firm's Labor and Employment
Department, was quoted in the Employment Law360 article
"DOL Shifts On FLSA
Protective Gear Exemption" on June 29, 2010. The article discusses the
Department of Labor's new interpretation concluding that employees now must be
paid for the donning and doffing of protective gear – an interpretation which
contradicts almost 10 years of Department of Labor precedent.
