Fourth Circuit Pronounces Joint Employer Test Under FLSA

Nexsen Pruet • February 01, 2017
On Jan. 25, 2017, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, which has jurisdiction over North and South Carolina, issued an opinion in a collective action wage and hour case setting forth a six-factor test for determining whether two persons or entities constitute joint employers under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Salinas v. Commercial Interiors Inc., Opinion No. 15-1915. On the same day, the court also issued another opinion in two consolidated wage and hour cases under the FLSA, applying the six-factor test and reversing the district court’s dismissal of the cases. Hall v. DirectTV, LLC, Opinion Nos. 15-1857 and 15-1858. These opinions resolve some uncertainty regarding joint employment determinations under the FLSA that had been created by the varying tests used by district courts within the Fourth Circuit and set forth a broader, more expansive approach to joint employment determinations under the FLSA than under Title VII. A discussion of the Fourth Circuit’s joint employment test under Title VII can be found here.
