The House Committee on Education and the Workforce today voted 21-15 to approve legislation that would roll back the National Labor Relations Board’s joint employer decision. Under the August decision, two separate entities are considered “joint employers” of the same employees if they have any degree of indirect or reserved control over matters governing the essential terms and conditions of employment. The Protecting Local Business Opportunity Act (H.R. 3459) would amend the National Labor Relations Act to specify that two or more employers may be considered joint employers only if each employer shares and exercises “actual, direct and immediate” control over essential terms and conditions of employment. The Senate Health, Labor, Education & Pensions Committee held a hearing this month on similar legislation (S. 2015). AHA supports the bills as a member of the Coalition to Save Local Businesses
