NLRB Vacates Joint Employer Case

Volume 17, Issue 3
February 27, 2018

On February 26, 2018, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB or Board) issued an order vacating its recent decision in Hy-Brand Industrial Contractors, Ltd., due to the Board’s Designated Agency Ethics Official’s determination that Member Emanuel should have been disqualified from participating in that decision. Unfortunately, Hy-Brand is the new NLRB decision that overturned the unfavorable joint employer standard adopted by the Obama-Board in Browning-Ferris Industries of California, Inc. As such, the Board’s announcement vacating Hy-Brand means that the Browning-Ferris standard is once again in effect.

We will keep you posted on this developing issue which we hope is a temporary set-back to the Board’s efforts to change the joint employer standard.
