RLDF Congressional Leadership Series – Joint-Employer Status Case and Implications of the Decision

The fourth Congressional Leadership Series took place on October 26th, 2015 in Washington, DC. This panel was the third of our quarterly CLS programs  and was moderated by Hans Von Spakovsky of the Heritage Foundation. The panel covered the National Labor Relations Board’s ruling in Browning Ferris Industries case to change the definition of joint‐employer status, and the implications of the decision.  The discussion focused on how the changed legal standard will affect businesses, states trying to implement the standard, and individuals – and focused on the legislative path forward.

Panelists included: Attorney General Adam Laxalt, Nevada, Attorney General Brad Schimel, Wisconsin, Attorney General Alan Wilson (RLDF Chairman), South Carolina, Senator Johnny Isakson, Georgia, and Congressman Phil Roe, Tennessee.

The event took place at The Heritage Foundation in Washington, DC.
