Webinar: The NLRB's newest test for joint employer status



Date: September 30, 2015

Time: Noon–1:00 p.m. Eastern

Location: Webinar (access instructions e-mailed upon registration)

The NLRB’s recent decision in Browning-Ferris significantly expands the scope of who may be considered a joint employer. Companies and franchisors who hire services need to critically re-examine their contracts and evaluate the scope of their authority under the NLRB’s new standard. This decision has extensive implications beyond employer-employee relationships with repercussions for franchise companies in particular, and businesses generally.

Join Nixon Peabody for a webinar on September 30 that will provide a timely update on how recent decisions including Browning-Ferris, and pending decisions including McDonald’s, will impact joint employer status. Topics for discussion include:

  • How the expanded joint employer test will affect employees and employers in the future
  • Practical actions companies can take to protect themselves
  • Regular employment vs. franchise employment
  • Concerns regarding potential union negotiations with franchisor corporations
  • The meaning of the NLRB’s Freshii opinion for franchisors
