On February 25, 2020, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) released its final joint employer rule that favorably defines joint employer conditions, so that entities such as franchisees and their franchisor will generally not be considered to be joint employers going forward. This NLRB ruling follows the Department of Labor similarly issuing its final joint employer rule in January.
The NLRB rule states: “Under this final rule, an entity may be considered a joint employer of a separate employer’s employees only if the two share or codetermine the employees’ essential terms and conditions of employment, which are exclusively defined as wages, benefits, hours of work, hiring, discharge, discipline, supervision, and direction.” Further, in its 194-page ruling, the NLRB specifically states that the Board “has generally not held franchisors to be joint employers with their franchisees.”
