On January 12th, the Department of Labor (DOL) released its final rule that defines joint employer situations in a manner, so that entities such as franchisees and their franchisor will likely not be considered to be joint employers going forward.
In addition to using a four-factor test to analyze each company under consideration, the ruling specifically states that a franchisor-franchisee relationship does not explicitly create a joint employer relationship. This is great news for franchisors who want to protect their brand with consistent policies and onboarding procedures. Interested in learning how this ruling may impact your business?
