Franchisees Team Up to Urge Congress to Examine ‘Joint Employer’ Standard
By Kate Taylor, Entrepreneur
The franchise industry isn’t resting in its opposition to the National Labor Relations Board’s definition of “joint employer.”
On Tuesday, a group of business owners and franchise industry leaders launched the Coalition to Save Local Businesses (CSLB), a lobbying group seeking to convince Congress of the negative impact redefining the concept of “joint employer” would have on the franchise industry. Coalition co-chairs include franchisees from Golden Corral, College Hunks Hauling Junk and Choice Hotels.
