Organized labor is still determined to fight to save the Obama era expansion of the joint employer rule, most recently using the COVID-19 crisis as its tool of choice. The AFL-CIO along with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) early this week sent a letter to NLRB Chairman John Ring urging the delay the final “joint employer” rule, set to take effect on Monday, April 27. Their letter pointed to a different decision rendered recently by the NLRB where the Board agreed to delay the effective date of its new union elections rule until July 31 due to the coronavirus. The labor letter, signed by the General Counsels of both organizations, wanted joint employer postponed to July 31 as well. Although the NLRB has yet to officially respond to the plea from the two unions, we would suspect the new definition of joint employer will officially be in effect come Monday.
