Sixty days of public  comments opened on Friday, September 14 when the National Labor Relations Board proposed the following definition of “joint employer,” “Employer may be found to be a joint-employer of another employer’s employees only if it possesses and exercises substantial, direct and immediate control over the essential terms and conditions of employment and has done so in a manner that is not limited and routine. Indirect influence and contractual reservations of authority would no longer be sufficient to establish a joint-employer relationship.” The change is a step back from the expansion of joint employer under the Obama administration.
