The US House Education and Workforce Committee moved the ball closer to the goal line of repealing the NLRB joint employer ruling with a hearing earlier this week on the risks imposed by the new expanded definition. The committee took testimony from a number of opponents of the expanded rule and in the wake of the hearing released a statement expressing the concerns the Committee harbors about “the growing threat to job creation, entrepreneurship, and small businesses posed by the expanded definition of joint employer under federal labor laws.” Although none is pending just yet, it is anticipated that House members will soon file a bill soon to undo the joint-employer ruling and restore the former definition.
