Joint Employment

As a nursing home attorney for over 25 years, we often see national chains that control operations and siphons funds away from the facility through related entities. National Labor Relations Board established standards for joint employment that defines how nursing homes work with third-party caregivers. Companies would be defined as joint employers if they work together or could work together to set wages and benefits.

The revised standards settle joint employment law making it easier for workers connected with staffing firms to protect themselves. See draft posted for inspection. Corporations that use staffing agencies need to detect their staffing agencies’ illegal labor practices.
