Small businesses work hard to create local jobs and opportunities, and they invest directly into their communities. But because of an extreme and unworkable joint employer rule, many small business owners are now mired in a confusing legal landscape they never planned for.
Tamra Kennedy, a local restaurant owner, recently shared her story on how the new joint employer scheme puts her business at risk. Watch:
We should be making it easier, not harder, for local business owners like Tamra to succeed. That’s why the committee will soon mark up the Save Local Business Act, which restores the commonsense understanding of what it means to be an employer and provides small businesses with the joint employer relief they need.
