New Joint Employer Final Rules: What You Need to Know
The National Labor Relations Board just expanded the definition of who may be considered a “joint employer” under the National Labor Relations Act. This rule will have a significant impact on franchise systems as well as individual business owners and those engaged with staffing relationships. The Department of Labor is expected to follow suit shortly.
This webinar, presented by Polsinelli, will highlight what those at risk of being potential employers — including, franchisors, franchisees and staffing agencies — should understand about joint employment under the new rules. We will also discuss the strategies the NLRB, DOL and Plaintiffs’ bar are likely to employ (pun intended) in connection with these new rules.
- Describe how the new joint employment rules may be applied
- Explain what factors can and cannot be used to determine joint employer status under the new rules
