House Passes Bill to Stop Biden’s Joint Employer Rule From Gutting Small Businesses

WASHINGTON – Today, the House passed H.J. Res. 98, a Congressional Review Act resolution that will nullify the National Labor Relation Board’s (NLRB) joint employer rule, which recklessly piles extra costs, liabilities, and regulatory burdens on America’s small businesses and entrepreneurs.
Education and the Workforce Committee Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) made the following statement on the House Floor ahead of the bill’s passage: “I’d like to point out a key difference in the Republican and Democrat parties illustrated by the joint employer rule. Listen carefully to the language under debate. The conservative language: Direct, immediate. And the liberal language: Indirect, potential. Any casual observer of American politics can understand how this blatant attempt to smuggle legal ambiguity into the otherwise clear-cut law will be abused by a weaponized and partisan agency. It will open every American franchisor and franchisee to lawfare from the Left if it does not toe the Democrat party line. With the spurious pretenses we’ve seen this administration use to go after Catholic Americans and concerned mothers, we don’t need to give it another tool to go after American small businesses.”

H.J. Res. 98:

  • Nullifies the NLRB’s final joint employer rule, which recklessly holds a company liable for employees it does not employ or directly control.
  • Prevents future anti-business administrations from implementing another similar job killing regulation.
  • Ensures that individuals working to achieve the American Dream of owning and running their own business aren’t impeded.
