Case Description: 

In this Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) case, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals articulated a two-step approach for analyzing claims of joint employment that is faithful to the long-standing premise that, when two entities codetermine the key terms and conditions of a worker’s job, the worker’s entire employment arrangement must be viewed as a single employment to assess compliance with the FLSA. After the defendant filed a petition for certiorari, Public Citizen joined counsel for the plaintiffs to prepare the brief in opposition. On January 8, 2018, the Supreme Court denied the petition for certiorari.
