WASHINGTON — Paul DeCamp, administrator of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division, has joined workplace law firm, Jackson Lewis LLP, as a partner in its Washington, D.C., office. At the Labor Department, DeCamp, appointed by President George W. Bush, led the federal agency that interprets and enforces the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Davis-Bacon Act, the Service Contract Act, and close to seventy other federal statutes. He was in charge of 1,300 employees in more than 220 offices nationwide and managed an operating budget of more than $170 million. His responsibilities included enforcement of policy, field operations, strategic planning, legislation, regulations, opinion letters, and compliance assistance. At Jackson Lewis, DeCamp will co-chair the firm’s wage and hour practice group. “Some 135 million workers in this country are covered by federal wage and hour laws, and many more are subject to state and local standards,” said DeCamp. “Misinterpretation of wage and hour laws gives rise to numerous lawsuits, including class-action claims by thousands of individuals. I am very excited to join a firm that has one of the best reputations for helping employers ‘do the right thing’ and address problems before they result in costly litigation.” Before his appointment as administrator, DeCamp served as senior policy advisor to the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Employment Standards. In that capacity, he was a member of the Wage and Hour Division’s executive team and provided legal and policy advice on the full range of wage and hour matters. He is a graduate of Columbia Law School.
