Coalition Lauds Congressional Panel for Supporting Small Businesses


WASHINGTON, June 17 – Coalition to Save Local Businesses Executive Director Michael Layman released the statement below following the passage of the U.S. House Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee bill this morning. The bill included a provision to block federal agency investigations based on an expanded joint employer standard:

“Small businesses work every day to serve our communities and meet countless demands. They simply need the protection of the long-standing, successful joint employer standard to continue running their businesses and creating jobs. The U.S. House Appropriations Subcommittee has taken an important step toward providing a measure of regulatory certainty for small businesses across the country by preserving the current definition of ‘joint employer’. The subcommittee action is a direct response to the National Labor Relations Board’s attempt to invent a new joint employer standard that threatens the contracts many small businesses rely on. Our Coalition’s small business members thank Chairman Tom Cole for his leadership today.”
