Labor Day and What Employers Need to Know About the National Labor Relations Board?s Changing Joint Employer Rules
The NLRB and its General Counsel, in recent decisions and briefs, have signaled that they are in the process of significantly considering expanding what affiliated companies will be considered a ,joint employerŠ under the National Labor Relations Act. In the past, one company had to control another company‰s labor and employee relations to be considered a joint employer. Under the evolving standard, one company may merely have the indirect power to influence labor relations, even if not exercised or to otherwise have a high degree of control over another company to be considered a joint employer. This evolving standard may have substantial impact on franchisors/franchisees, distributor and representatives, companies and their subcontractors, and parent companies and their subsidiaries.
