URGENT & TIMELY WEBINAR! On August 27, 2015 the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued its ruling in the closely watched Browning-Ferris Industries of California, Inc. (BFI) case (Case 32-RC-109684). In rejecting over 30 years of precedent, the NLRB established a new standard for determining joint-employer status when two or more seemingly independent businesses conduct business with one another. The NLRB’s new joint-employer standard will have an impact on temporary staffing business models. In short, the decision lays the groundwork to overturn other past NLRB decisions and will, if left unchecked, alter how two or more independent businesses conduct business in the United States. The decision is one of many past and future decisions that will be carefully examined in a convenient 90-minute webinar conducted by SmithAmundsen’s Staffing Agency, Independent Contractor and Contingent Workforce attorneys. Additionally, this webinar will also provide an examination into how other administrative agencies, and the courts, have increasingly broadened the joint-employer liability concept in other labor and employment areas such as: discrimination/wrongful termination; wage/hour; immigration; workers compensation; and benefits/ERISA.
