NLRB Joint Employer Rule Unlikely to Have Much Effect on Temporary Staffing

The proposed joint employer rule published by the U.S. National Labor Relations Board Sept. 7 (as reported in the Sept. 7 issue of Staffing Today) would make it easier for businesses that use contract services to be held liable as joint employers, but in the view of ASA lawyers it is unlikely to have a significant effect on the use of staffing services or staffing agency–client relations. Joint employment has always been an inherent aspect of the staffing firm–client relationship under prior rules that defined joint employment more narrowly—with no adverse effect. So the new broader rule, if adopted and upheld by the courts, should make little difference.
