AGC of America hosted a free, members-only webinar on “What the NLRB's New Joint Employer Standard Means for Construction Contractors” as part of its quarterly Open Shop Web Meeting on Nov. 3.
Attorney Larry Marquess of Littler Mendelson delivered a presentation on the implications of the National Labor Relations Board's recent decision in the Browning-Ferris Industries case for construction employers and how such employers can minimize the risk of being deemed a joint employer of workers employed by their subcontractors, staffing firms, and other companies. The event also featured a labor law update by Denise Gold, AGC’s associate general counsel.
