The National Labor Relations Board last week announced that it is looking into the standard for determining joint-employer status, which AAHOA President and CEO Chip Rogers said he fully supports.
WASHINGTON, May 14 – AAHOA President and CEO Chip Rogers issued the following statement in response to the announcement by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) that it is considering rulemaking to address the standard for determining joint-employer status:
“AAHOA members are encouraged by this first step towards rectifying one of the most egregious and disastrous actions ever taken by the NLRB. The Browning-Ferris Industries decision created chaos and uncertainty amongst franchisors and franchisees alike and continues to threaten the successful franchise business model that has been the path to small business success for so many AAHOA members. The joint-employer doctrine is one of the most important issues facing hoteliers today, and we are optimistic that Chairman Ring understands the value in resolving this matter. That said, we will continue to advocate for a statutory fix provided by H.R. 3441, the Save Local Business Act, which would codify the historical joint-employer standard and prevent the type of politicized bureaucratic bulldozing of decades of precedent that got us here in the first place.”
