Office of Public Affairs


Today, the Board extended the effective date of its recent rule on determining the standard for joint-employer status to February 26, 2024, to facilitate resolution of legal challenges with respect to the rule. The new standard will only be applied to cases filed after the rule becomes effective.

Notice of the extension will be published in the Federal Register shortly.

Established in 1935, the National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency that protects employees from unfair labor practices and protects the right of private sector employees to join together, with or without a union, to improve wages, benefits and working conditions. The NLRB conducts hundreds of workplace elections and investigates thousands of unfair labor practice charges each year.
