President Biden’s recent nomination of David Weil to head the U.S. Department of Labor‘s Wage and Hour Division clearly mark his administration’s plans to restore worker classification rules and increase wage and hour enforcement efforts.

Weil is expected to pick up where he left off under the Obama administration and make a bold move to reverse priorities from the employer-friendly policies of the previous administration.

What Might Change?

Weil is well-known for his views on worker classification under federal law and is expected to promote a broader definition of who qualifies for protections and benefits like minimum wage and overtime pay, paid sick time and family leave.

Weil’s confirmation puts him at the head of a Wage and Hour Division that the White House is clearly looking to adapt an aggressive approach toward enforcement. This is evidenced by President Biden’s recent budget requests for increased funding for the DOL’s efforts to combat violations of federal wage, safety and other work-related laws and regulations.

What Does This Mean for Federal Contractors?

This stresses the importance of the need for federal contractors to continually review their Service Contract Act (SCA) and Davis-Bacon and Related Acts (DBRA) compliance measures.
