MINORITY-OWNED BUSINESSES PUSH TO UNWIND JOINT EMPLOYER RULE

MINORITY-OWNED BUSINESSES PUSH TO UNWIND JOINT EMPLOYER RULE: A trio of groups representing minority business owners joined the industry push for Congress to overturn the Biden administration’s new joint employer rule.

— The rule, which was set to go into effect last month before the NLRB delayed its implementation by 60 days, is already the target of a lawsuit by a coalition of business groups who argue that it would “cripple small businesses” and hurt employment and wage growth. But a separate effort on the Hill would overturn the new rule with a simple majority vote in both chambers through the Congressional Review Act.

— “We believe this rule could particularly impact minority-owned small businesses and franchisees that rely on [business-to-business contracts] to sustain and grow their businesses,” the National Asian/Pacific Islander American Chamber of Commerce and Entrepreneurship, U.S. Black Chambers Inc. and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce wrote in a letter to lawmakers Wednesday, urging lawmakers to support the CRA resolution.
