NLRB's New Joint-Employer Standard: What You Need To Know
A CLE Program Live in Philadelphia and via Webinar
8:30 - 9:00 a.m. ET
Registration and Breakfast (in Philadelphia)
9:00 - 10:30 a.m. ET
The NLRB recently overturned decades-old precedent when it vastly expanded its definition of “joint employer,” upending established federal labor law and creating tremendous uncertainty for companies. Under the standard announced in the Browning-Ferris Industries (BFI) decision, the NLRB will no longer require direct and immediate control over terms and conditions of employment to find a joint-employer status. Rather, the right to indirectly control terms and conditions of employment, even if never exercised, is sufficient to create a joint-employer relationship.
Please join us for a presentation exploring how hiring, discipline/termination, supervision and direction of work affect the joint-employer analysis. We will also address the decision’s potential impact outside the area of union organizing and examine joint-employer issues under the FLSA, Title VII, and other areas of employment law.
This program is pending approval for 1.5 CLE credits in PA, NJ, NY, IL, TX, and CA, as well as HRCI credit. PA credit will be available for in-person attendees only.
