On Jan. 20, the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor issued a new Administrator's Interpretation on the issue of joint employment under the F.L.S.A. What is joint employment? The F.L.S.A. generally applies only to "employers." If a company or organization is an "employer" of a given employee, it's responsible for ensuring that the employee is paid in compliance with the F.L.S.A. In many cases, it's easy to identify the employer of a given employee - its name appears on the employee's paycheck. But sometimes, the situation is more complicated.
