The Department of Labor (DOL) thinks joint employer relationships have become murky and tenuous for employees and is stepping up its enforcement efforts to protect employees. Specifically, the DOL is looking at joint employment in two ways: horizontal and vertical.

The EEOC proposes that employers should be required to submit pay data as part of their EEO-1 reports. The revised EEO-1 report was proposed as part of the White House's commemoration of the seventh anniversary of the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act which was President Obama's first piece of legislation.
