NLRB Proposes New Joint Employer Rule

September 14, 2018

On September 14th, the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB” or “Board”) proposed a rule to return the joint employer standard to the longtime rule that had been in effect prior to 2015. 

In 2015, the Obama-era NLRB expanded the joint employer standard, allowing employers with indirect or potential control over employees to be considered joint employers and therefore liable for labor law violations. Many in the business world have been concerned that the standard is too broad and puts businesses, especially franchisors, at risk of being liable for other business’ labor practices.
