SWACCA Submits Comments in Support of NLRB Proposed Rule Regulating Joint Employer Status under the NLRA

The Signatory Wall and Ceiling Contractors Alliance (SWACCA) submitted comments on the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) proposed rule to revise its standards for determining joint employment under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). SWACCA’s comments build on an effort dating back to January 2019, when SWACCA filed comments in opposition to the previous Administration’s proposed joint employer rule on the basis that it would induce unscrupulous construction contractors to use labor brokers and other schemes to avoid their obligations under the NRLA.

In its comments on the current NLRB’s proposed joint employer rule, SWACCA noted its support for rescinding the previous Administration’s joint employer rule and replacing it with this proposed rule because it will help to reduce employee misclassification in the construction industry.
