Joint Employer - Action Alert

The restaurant industry has worked tirelessly to oppose the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) overreach on the definition of a joint employer. We must urge the Senate to introduce and pass legislation to restore the joint-employer standard that existed before the NLRB's intervention.

The Issue:
On February 26, the NLRB reversed its previous ruling that overturned the overreaching joint-employer standard. It was determined that one of the NLRB commissioners should have recused himself from the case due to a conflict of interest. 


As a result, the ruling expands the joint-employer standard to anyone who exercises indirect, potential, or unexercised reserved control over workers’ terms and conditions of employment, such as hiring, firing, determining pay, or supervising employees on a routine basis.


The Solution:

In 2017, the House passed H.R. 3441, the Save Local Business Act, to amend the National Labor Relations Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act to clarify that two or more employers must have “actual, direct, and immediate” control over their employees to be considered joint employers. Now, we need the Senate to support immediate consideration of H.R. 3441 to write a permanent, federal joint-employment liability standard into law.
