    IFDA Statement on NLRB’s Decision Overturning the Joint Employer Rule

    IFDA Statement on NLRB’s Decision Overturning the Joint Employer Rule

    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.

    IFDA Applauds FDA Decision Regarding Enforcement of FSMA Written Assurance Requirements

    IFDA Applauds FDA Decision Regarding Enforcement of FSMA Written Assurance Requirements

    IFDA is pleased that the FDA has chosen not to enforce certain provisions of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), specifically the written assurance requirements of the hazard analysis/preventive controls regulation. This decision demonstrates FDA’s commitment to public health by allowing both the agency and the food industry to focus on the critical issues of food safety without imposing an overly burdensome regulatory regime.  IFDA appreciates FDA’s recognition that the written assurance provision created an unnecessary requirement that had little impact on food safety and the agency’s willingness to work together with industry to strengthen consumer protection standards through regulations that are practical and science-based.

    IFDA Supports Trump Administration Rule that Paves the Way for Association Health Plans

    IFDA Supports Trump Administration Rule that Paves the Way for Association Health Plans

    IFDA is grateful to President Trump for addressing regulations that make it difficult and costly for small business owners to provide healthcare for themselves and their employees. Foodservice distributors see firsthand how the rising cost of healthcare has impacted small businesses. The Department of Labor’s proposed new rules will lead to more affordable choices for many Americans. Specifically, the rule removes regulatory roadblocks preventing businesses from joining together to find affordable coverage for themselves and their employees. We look forward to working with the administration to implement the new rules.

    IFDA Applauds Passage of Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

    IFDA applauds Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch and their Republican colleagues for passing legislation that represents the largest reduction in business tax rates in our nation’s history to bring much needed relief to American businesses. The bill reduces the corporate tax rate to 20% and ensures closer parity between different types of businesses by increasing the pass-through business deduction to 23 percent. Given that IFDA Members currently pay an average effective tax rate of 37%, a tax reduction of this magnitude will allow our member companies to use the savings to invest in growing their businesses.
