Why Should you Attend:

This course is a must attend for anyone interested in understanding the significant issues relating to NLRB's Redefined Joint Employer Doctrine.

In a recent court decision on Browning-Ferris Industries of California, Inc. case, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) redefined and expanded its standards in determining and identifying joint employers. In order to determine whether a company qualifies as an employer, the Fourth Circuit has adopted an employee-friendly "hybrid test" that is based on traditional common law elements of control as well as the "economic realities" of employment used by the Department of Labor (DOL).

While this test have set off positive outcome in recent cases, it is likely to heighten possible liabilities under Title VII. Thus, there is a need for companies and organizations to be vigilant about such development, review and remodel their employment practices accordingly to avoid future risks and legal challenges.
