CDW Statement on NLRB Vacating Hy-Brand Decision

Washington, D.C. – On February 26, 2018, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued an order vacating its 2017 decision in Hy-Brand Industrial Contractors, putting the Board’s previous decision in Browning-Ferris Industries (BFI) back in place. BFI drastically expanded the joint employer standard under the National Labor Relations Act and threatened every contractual relationship nationwide. CDW is taking a close look at the NLRB’s position with respect to vacating the Hy-Brand decision. Nonetheless, we will continue to fight against the bad policy established by Browning-Ferris Industries and urge Congress to provide lasting certainty by passing the Save Local Business Act.
