WASHINGTON – Asian American Hotel Owners Association President and CEO Chip Rogers applauded the passage today of an appropriations bill that included policy restricting the enforcement of the expanded joint employer standard. Rogers released the following statement:
“The National Labor Relations Board erred when they significantly expanded the joint employer standard. What was a concrete and clear standard for everyone from employers to employees is now confusing and unclear. With the passage of the rider on the appropriations bill today, the House has set a clear marker that the new joint employer standard must go. Together with the Save Local Business Act, bipartisan progress is being made on this issue, which is critically important for small businesses.”
