Bruce Steen Quoted in Employment Law360

July 6, 2010

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.
