Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
16-1449 4th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2017

Issue: Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit misinterpreted the Fair Labor Standards Act and its implementing regulation in holding—in conflict with the decisions of eight other circuits—that a claim of vertical joint employment must be evaluated by focusing on whether the putative joint employers are “completely disassociated” from one another with respect to the putative employee.
