ASA: Proposed NLRB Joint Employer Rule Would Create Uncertainty Rather Than Stability
The National Labor Relations Board’s proposed joint employer rule “is nebulous and therefore would create uncertainty rather than stability,” according to comments submitted by ASA senior vice president and chief legal and operating officer Stephen Dwyer on behalf of the organization.
Announced Sept. 6, the rule proposes to rescind and replace the Trump administration’s 2020 rule while implementing a new standard for determining joint employer status.
“The vagueness and fundamental unworkability of the proposed rule lies in its reliance on ‘common law agency principles,’ which the rule does not define or explain,” Dwyer said in the comments. “Instead of providing clear guidance, the proposed rule would result in inconsistent, case-by-case joint employment determinations. This is a recipe for ongoing confusion and litigation.”
