Today(Friday January 12th), the House of Representatives passed a bill to stop the implementation of the NLRB’s new joint employer rule.
In order for the rule to be fully stopped via this process, the bill would also have to pass the Senate and be signed by President Biden.
It is unclear at this time whether the Senate will take up the bill. However, President Biden has vowed to veto it should it pass in the Senate. So, despite today’s passage by the house, the bill is unlikely to stop the implementation of the new joint employer rule. For more information on the joint employer rule, check out our blog.
