Businesses press NLRB on joint employer proposal


Business groups are gearing up to go to the mat if the National Labor Relations Board moves forward with a plan to redefine the circumstances under which a worker should be considered “jointly employed” by two or more entities.

The NLRB has been bombarded with nearly 12,000 public comments in the lead up to its Dec. 7 submission deadline. (There’s also a Dec. 21 due date for a narrow band of reply filings.)

Many of these comments were of employers taking aim at much of what the NLRB put out back in early September as vague and unworkable for businesses.
