Employee versus independent contractor: sometimes a slippery slope

State and federal employment officials and regulators often take pains to walk a very fine line when discussing the use of contracted-for labor by companies across the country.

NLRB broadens the meaning of "joint employer"

A new decision came out today from the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) that will definitely affect the use of temporary workers and may also affect the use of independent contractors by opening the door to their unionization. You can read the NLRB press release here (https://www.nlrb.gov/news-outreach/news-story/board-issues-decision-browning-ferris-industries). That release has a link to the actual 50 page decision in Browning-Ferris Industries of California, Inc., d/b/a BFI Newby Island Recyclery, 362 NLRB No. 186 (2015).
