Sinema Pushes Back on Labor Board’s Planned Joint Employer Rule


Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-Ariz.) teased a potential vote to overturn the National Labor Relations Board’s planned move to alter the joint-employer standard under federal labor law.

Sinema said Tuesday that the rule proposed by the NLRB is “concerning,” and suggested she would vote to overturn the rule through a Congressional Review Act resolution. Under the CRA, Congress can reverse an agency’s rulemaking with a simple majority in both chambers.
