The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) recently ruled and made policy advantages on the issue of joint employer responsibility for contact and temporary workers. This new ruling will effect on those in the heavy construction and waste management business.
According to the National Waste and Recycling Association, late last month, the NLRB voted a ruling to redefine the employee-employer relationship, which has major suggestions for workers of sub-contractors, franchisees and staffing agencies in all industries. The ruling will make it easier for unions to negotiate on behalf of contractual workers and franchisees.
A company that hires a contractor to staff its facilities can now be considered a so-called dual employer of the workers at that facility. And now, under federal labor law, a union representing those workers would be legally entitled to bargain with the parent company not just the contractor company.
