Workforce Fairness Institute Reacts To New Joint Employer Standard Legislation
Bipartisan Consensus Exists To Sideline Misguided Policy
Washington, D.C. – Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI) spokesperson Heather Greenaway released the following statement today in response to legislation rewriting the legal definition of joint employment and undoing the Browning-Ferris decision reached by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB):
“Under the previous administration, the National Labor Relations Board operated as an extension of Big Labor as evidenced by its decision to create a new joint employer standard undoing decades of labor law and radically changing policy surrounding business liability and workplace law violations. Few issues on Capitol Hill receive bipartisan backing, yet undoing this deeply flawed decision has engendered support among Republicans and Democrats alike. The Save Local Business Act introduced today in the U.S. House takes a significant step toward undoing this confusing and vague regulation that cripples job creators. We look forward to working with both parties in advocating for legislation protecting small businesses with the expectation it expeditiously advances in Congress and reaches the President’s desk becoming law.”
