National Labor Relations Board

What’s new: The NLRB redefined joint employment, affecting employers who regularly use or provide temporary workers or subcontractors.  These changes can affect routine issues like confidentiality, investigations, at-will employment and handbooks.

What it means: The NRLB decision means that sign companies that hire installers could be held directly responsible for labor law violations by the subcontractors, and sign companies that serve as subcontractors could find control of their own companies weakened. The NLRB’s decision also threatens sign industry franchises, as it makes franchisors responsible for franchisee employees. Franchisees also potentially could be impacted by labor union action against the franchisor.
