CDW Statement on NLRB’s Joint Employer Final Rule

Washington, DC – On February 25, the NLRB issued its Final Rule on the joint-employer standard under the National Labor Relations Act. The Final Rule reinstates the traditional joint-employer standard while further clarifying the standard by providing valuable definitions for key terms.

CDW applauds the Board for finding a comprehensive solution to this complex issue. This Final Rule ensures employers have the stability and predictability necessary to run their businesses, continue to expand, and create more jobs. This bright line rule provides employers and employees alike with clear understanding of how the joint-employer standard will be implemented and interpreted. It successfully ensures employers are held accountable to their employees while protecting them from wrongful liability.
