Federal Judge Vacates NLRB Joint Employer Rule

On March 8, 2024, a U.S District Court judge vacated the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) recent rule on determining the standard for joint-employer status; the judge had previously stayed the rule, which was then set to take effect on March 11. The judge called the proposed rule overly broad and “contrary to law” and held that the rule’s two-step test was redundant. The NLRB is reviewing the decision and considering its next steps.
