NLRB Expands Joint-Employer Definition
In a major decision Thursday, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled that companies may be considered joint-employers with their contractors and franchisees. The ruling will increase the potential responsibility of certain companies, such as staffing agencies and franchisors, and may make union involvement with those companies more likely. The full ramifications of this ruling are not yet known—for example, any effect on determining employee count for FMLA and ACA purpose.
