Statement on D.C. circuit ruling on joint employer test


ATLANTA, Ga., Jan. 2 – AAHOA President and CEO Chip Rogers issued the following
statement in response to the ruling by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals on the Browning-Ferris
Industries appeal:

“This decision raises more questions than it answers regarding the joint employer standard and is
yet another reminder that a statutory fix is necessary to create a clear standard. Without clarity
from Congress or the National Labor Relations Board through its rulemaking process,
franchisors and franchisees will continue to see an ever-evolving law that perpetually confounds
those who seek to comply with it. America’s hoteliers call on the NLRB to clarify the joint
employer standard and return certainty and stability to the franchise industry, and we continue to
call for a statutory fix through the passage of legislation such as the Save Local Business Act.”
