NLRB ruling on staffing agencies won’t stand up to scrutiny
Regarding the Aug. 28 online article “NLRB ruling could shake up healthcare staffing industry,” the ruling won’t stand because it has no basis in law or common sense. Under this ruling, your garbage collector is your employee because you impact his/her job by putting out the trash on Wednesdays (thereby dictating his/her work schedule), and agreeing to the garbage collection fee—which (in their idiotic theory) means you materially impact the worker’s wages. This “knee bone is connected to the thigh bone” approach will end up in the trash bin of history.
