National Labor Relations Board Reverses Obama Era Joint-Employer Ruling

As expected, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has overturned an Obama era broadening of the definition of ‘joint-employer’ under the National Labor Relations Act. Returning to a pre-Browning Ferris standard, “proof of indirect control, contractually-reserved control that has never been exercised, or control that is limited and routine will [no longer] be sufficient to establish a joint-employer relationship.”  This reversal will make it easier for employers, but more difficult for employees, when it comes to holding companies liable for alleged violations committed by joint employers. Read the full ruling.
