The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is extending for an additional 30 days the time for submitting comments regarding its proposed rulemaking concerning the standard for determining joint employer status under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).
The submission window is currently open and those interested can file comments on or before Dec. 13. Comments replying to the comments submitted during the initial comment period must be received by the board on or before Dec. 20.
Public comments are invited regarding all aspects of the proposed rule and should be submitted electronically to www.regulations.gov or by mail or hand-delivery to Roxanne Rothschild, Acting Executive Secretary, National Labor Relations Board, 1015 Half Street S.E., Washington, D.C. 20570-0001.
NRCA joined with allied organizations in the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace (CDW) to submit comments supporting the NLRB's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) regarding the joint employer standard. Under the NLRA, the joint employer standard is used to determine when two or more entities are jointly responsible for bargaining with any union representing the employees and liable for any violations of the NLRA either entity commits against those employees.
