Take Action Support The Save Local Business Act
For decades, the joint employer standard has protected small businesses from liability involving employees over which they do not have actual or direct control. A recent decision by the National Labor Relations Board has put pressure on primary companies to assert more authority over small businesses to limit their new liability in federal labor law. As a result, small business operators may no longer have control over the business that they have built, nor will the employees that they have hired and trained be able to depend on the operator for their livelihoods.
We are asking that you join with us in taking action to urge Congress to pass the Save Local Business Act which would establish a simple definition for “joint employer” and eliminate the likelihood of small business being directly affected.
