Bruce’s Summary: According to a new decision by the NLRB, if an employer retains any contractual control rights over a temp worker – whether they exercise that right or not – that employer can be deemed a “joint employer” in terms of collective bargaining and can be liable for unfair labor practices. Now is the time to review your written agreements with temporary service providers to form arguments against possible “joint employer” status. “None of the information contained herein should be construed as legal advice, nor are Calvin Associates consultants engaged to offer legal advice.
