Franchise operators lobby for joint-employer definition to remain
By Lisa Jennings, Nation’s Restaurant News
A group of franchise business operators launched a coalition Tuesday to lobby Congress in an ongoing battle to prevent franchisors from being considered “joint employers” with franchisees.
The Coalition to Save Local Businesses was created with support from the International Franchise Association, or IFA, which has been at the forefront of attempts to prevent a shift in the joint-employer definition by the National Labor Relations Board.
