David Weil Nominated as Administrator of the Wage and Hour Division

On July 21st, the Senate held a hearing for several nominations, one being the “Nomination of David Weil to be the Administrator of the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor.” When news of this possibility started circulating in April, it was met with skepticism. Weil is known for calling out gig companies about misclassification.

Bloomberg Law writes that Weil will “assume a central role in one of the most legally complex and pressing employment questions facing the Biden administration: How to approach the gig economy’s booming workforce?” The nomination is complete, but the confirmation will likely still be highly contested due to Weil’s history.
