You Might be a Joint Employer: How to Understand the Legal Risks and Minimize Your Liability

Duration: 90 Minutes
Do you use staffing agency employees ("temps") to augment your workforce? Do you ever "borrow" employees from an affiliate, subsidiary or parent company? Are you a franchisor with one or more franchisees, who in turn hire employees? Did you know that you may have employer responsibilities to those employees in addition to the ones actually on your payroll? You may be a joint employer. This webinar will help you determine if and when you are a joint employer, your responsibilities as a joint employer and how and when you can minimize your liability as a joint employer.

Why Should you Attend
The National Labor Relations Board, the U.S. and state Departments of Labor and a number of other agencies have been broadening the definition of the term "joint employment" to include companies that previously did not have to concern themselves with this issue. As a result, many well-intentioned employers are finding themselves making significant pay-outs that can be avoided, or at least minimized with a little bit of proactive, preventative planning. This webinar will help you understand when and how you might be a joint employer, your responsibilities and what steps you can take to better protect yourself.
