National Labor Relations Board Says U.S. District Judge Stayed Joint-Employer Rule until March 11, 2024 

The National Labor Relations Board announced that a District Court Judge stayed the joint-employer rule until March 11, 2024. The joint-employer rule is important for companies that engage with independent contractors because it determines if a company is considered a joint-employer of workers who allege that they were misclassified as independent contrtactors by their primary employer. The new rule makes it more likely that a company will be considered a joint employer.

 

Established in 1935, the National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency that protects employees from unfair labor practices and protects the right of private sector employees to join together, with or without a union, to improve wages, benefits and working conditions. The NLRB conducts hundreds of workplace elections and investigates thousands of unfair labor practice charges each year.
