House Committee Approves Joint Employer Legislation

The House Committee on Education and the Workforce on Oct. 4 passed legislation along party lines that would redefine the term "joint employer" under the National Labor Relations Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act. The legislation, which NATSO supports as an active member of the Coalition to Save Local Businesses and was an issue on which NATSO members lobbied at the 2016 NATSO Day on the Hill, would clarify that two or more employers must have direct control over employees to be considered "joint employers."
