With ongoing advocacy by the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC) and the Department of Labor’s Wage & Hour Division to expand the definition of “joint employer”—and the recent significant Browning-Ferris National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruling—sweeping changes across employment and benefits laws are dramatically impacting the way employers will need to approach both their internal employment policies and their critical business relationships. This ever-changing landscape affects both unionized and non-union companies alike, and even entities that have no employees of their own. 

Please join our panel, which includes a former Member of the NLRB, as they draw on their collective experience in working with companies to manage the far-reaching business and legal considerations and challenges presented by the expansion of the joint employer status.

Topics will include:

  • Broadening of joint employer status by the EEOC and the Department of Labor
  • The ramifications of the NLRB’s recent decision in Browning-Ferris and other pending cases before the NLRB
  • Effects and liabilities under other federal statutes, including ERISA
  • Implications on the definition of “employee” under the Affordable Care Act employer mandate “shared responsibility” requirement
  • Considerations for non-compete and other protective actions in business partners agreements
  • Other measures employers should implement now to minimize risk and potential exposure from affected business relationships
