AAHOA Statement on Dept. of Labor Proposed Rule on Joint Employer


ATLANTA, Ga, Apr. 3 – AAHOA Interim President and CEO Rachel Humphrey issued the
following statement in response to the Department of Labor’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to
define joint employer in the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA):

“America’s hoteliers are pleased that the Department of Labor is proposing a rule to bring muchneeded clarity to businesses that rely on the franchise business model. For an entity to be considered a joint employer, they must have control over working conditions. Making the fourpart test outlined in the proposed rule part of the FLSA will help clarify joint employment status. We look forward to the public comment period and encourage hoteliers and small business owners who employ the franchise business model to seize this moment to make their voices heard on this important matter.”
