The US Circuit Court of Appeals for DC has accepted the Browning-Ferris case for consideration again in the wake of the NLRB vacating its decision in Hy-Brand Industrial Contractors that overturned the new joint employer definition established by the NLRB under President Obama in the Browning-Ferris decision. After the original Hy-Brand decision, the court remanded the case to the NLRB as the question before the court was effectively mooted by Hy-Brand. When the Board vacated the Hy-Brand decision in February, the Browning-Ferris definition of joint employer again became the law of the land, paving the way for the case to be reconsidered by the Court of Appeals. To further complicate matters, there is also a motion pending for the NLRB to reconsider its decision to vacate Hy-Brand. Much more to come on this . . .
