The US Labor Department on Friday sent for review a proposed rule that would set parameters for when businesses can classify workers as independent contractors, setting in motion the Trump administration’s effort to complete the high-priority rulemaking by year’s end, Bloomberg Law reported. The White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs will now conduct a legal and economic analysis before the rule can be cleared for public release. The department’s efforts to craft the rule had been jeopardized by an internal conflict over its legality and concerns that the November election’s results could doom the project.
