Earlier this month, Congress voted to pass HR 3441, also known as the “Save Local Businesses Act.” This bi-partisan bill clarifies the regulations within the expanded joint employer rule.

Under HR 3441, an employer may be considered a joint employer of a worker only if it “directly, actually, and immediately” exercises significant control over the primary elements of employment, such as hiring, firing, determining pay, or supervising employees on a routine basis. 

Katherine Lugar, CEO of AHLA, which serves as co-chair of the Coalition to Save Local Businesses, called the passing of HR 3441 “an important legislative victory to restore the traditional definition of a ‘joint employer.'” Learn more about the “Save Local Businesses Act” here.
