N.Y. AG Seeks to Hold Domino's Liable as Joint Employer

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has sued Domino's LLC, the worldwide pizza chain, seeking to hold the company liable as a joint employer with several New York franchisees. The lawsuit represents the first time a state enforcement agency has sought to avail itself of the National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB's) recently revised joint employer standard, and is the latest in a recent trend of aggressive government enforcement actions with respect to joint employer liability.
