Brett Bartlett quoted in Bloomberg BNA

12/04/2017

Brett Bartlett was quoted in a December 4 story from Bloomberg BNA, "PUNCHING IN: Labor Nominees, SCOTUS Cases, and a Question for the NLRB," on whether employer trade groups might step in and request opinion letters from the Wage and Hour Division (WHD) on behalf of members, who could then wave the WHD opinion in front of the judge. Bartlett said that it is clear from the past that the WHD would issue opinions in response to what could be viewed to be proxy requests made by associations or consortiums of employers even while the practices about which the requests were made were the subject of private litigation.
