Attention CEO’s and HR professionals!
Do you know what it means to be a joint employer?
While that term consistently meant the sharing of direct control and supervision over an employee's activity among two or more business entities, recent decisions from the National Labor Relations Board, which are being adopted by courts and governmental agencies across the country, have drastically changed the landscape and constructs of what it means to be a joint employer.
These decisions have resulted in significant changes to the long-standing status quo and have created confusion that may leave joint employers exposed to substantially increased legal risk. Importantly, the impact of these decisions is not just limited to what used to be considered typical joint employment relationships and also impacts businesses that work with franchises, temporary/seasonal staffing agencies, independent contractors, and several others.
Please join David Lichtenberg and Phillip Bauknight, from the New Jersey office of Fisher Phillips for an interactive presentation designed to help businesses understand what it means to be a joint employer and how to comply with regulatory guidance around this potentially troublesome situation.
There is no cost to attend this event.
