NLRB confirms plans to revisit joint employment standard
from Contingent Workforce Strategies 3.0
The National Labor Relations Board plans to revisit its joint employer standard by this summer, this time using rulemaking procedures. At issue is a 2015 NLRB decision that expanded the definition of who is a joint employer. In that case, the NLRB 3-2 vote that staffing firm workers at a Browning-Ferris Industries of California recycling site in Milpitas, Calif., were jointly employed by both BFI and the staffing firm. The expanded standard enabled unions to negotiate with both directly hired and staffing firm workers on the site.
