Today the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.J. Res 98 to repeal the National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) rule which dramatically expands the standard for determining joint employment. Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) Vice President of Workforce Evan Armstrong issued the statement below in response.
“RILA applauds the House for passing H. J. Res 98 to repeal the NLRB’S joint employer rule that is vague, unworkable and increases risks to retail supply chains. Leading retailers encourage the Senate to swiftly pass this resolution and send it to the President’s desk.”
RILA is a trade association of the world’s largest, most innovative, and recognizable retail companies and brands. RILA members include more than two hundred retailers, product manufacturers, and service suppliers, who together employ over 42 million Americans and account for $2.7 trillion in annual sales and hundreds of thousands of stores, manufacturing facilities, and distribution centers domestically and abroad.
