First Move: Labor Department to Limit Franchiser, Staffing Wage Liability

First Move: Labor Department to Limit Franchiser, Staffing Wage Liability
April 4, 2019 by Christina Laun Fugate, Partner
Joint employer liability has been a hot topic in the franchise industry for the past few years. On April 1, the Department of Labor issued a proposed regulation intended to minimize a franchisor's joint employer liability by narrowing the circumstances in which businesses (including franchisors) can be considered joint employers. The public has 60 days to submit comments to the proposed rule. More information about the proposed rule is available at here
