Joint-Employer Standard Change Would Harm Small Businesses

(Washington, D.C.) In a letter to a House committee today, the National Restaurant Association wrote that ongoing attempts by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to change the joint-employer standard would negatively impact employees, employers and the overall economy. The letter was sent to the U.S. House Small Business Subcommittee on Investigations, Oversight and Regulations in conjunction with its hearing, “Risky Business: Effects of New Joint Employer Standards for Small Firms.”
 
“As the nation’s second-largest private sector employer – with small business men and women owning 90 percent of all restaurants – our industry relies on the vision, innovation and risk-taking of entrepreneurs to provide opportunities to millions of people,” said Angelo Amador, SVP of Labor & Workforce Policy and Regulatory Counsel, National Restaurant Association. “Attempts to dismantle the existing joint-employer standard, which has been the bedrock of American business relationships for the last three decades, jeopardize business partnerships in all industries. We will continue to work with members of both parties to underscore the significance of the NLRB’s actions to the small businesses within their communities.”
