Guest:

Phillip B. Wilson, president and general counsel of the Labor Relations Institute

On Sept. 14, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) published a notice of proposed rulemaking intended to clarify what constitutes a joint-employer relationship between two businesses. Franchises, construction companies and organizations that use temporary or contract labor are among the employers that will be impacted most directly. How can HR prepare so that your workforce remains compliant?

In part one of this two-part episode of HR Break Room, Phillip B. Wilson of the Labor Relations Institute joins hosts Caleb Masters and Chelsea Justice to discuss:

  • what the new joint employer rule is
  • how it may change your relationship with contract workers
  • why the change from the Obama-era Browning-Ferris standard marks a fundamental shift in the status quo for joint-employer relationships
