IFDA Statement on NLRB’s Decision Overturning the Joint Employer Rule
Statement from Jonathan Eisen, Senior Vice President, Government Relations of the International Foodservice Distributors Association (IFDA)
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) yesterday vacated a decision overturning the Obama Administration’s joint employer rule. As a result, the Obama Board’s joint employer standard remains in place, which is bad news for businesses large and small. Until the matter is cleared up, businesses face confusing and uncertain labor costs. This puts jobs and businesses at risk, leading to decreased opportunities for entrepreneurs and less job creation.
It’s time for the Senate to pass the Save Local Business Act, passed by the House in November. This legislation provides much needed clarity, protects business relationships, and promotes economic growth.
