National Restaurant Association Praises Labor Department Proposed Rule on Joint Employer

Washington, D.C. – The National Restaurant Association today praised a proposed federal rule regarding joint employment announced this morning by the U.S. Department of Labor. 

Association Vice President of Public Policy and Legal Advocacy Shannon Meade released the following statement:

“For years, the prior administration served American restaurants a daily special of uncertainty and unpredictability.

“This rulemaking process is long overdue--putting this chapter behind us is a load lifted off the entire restaurant industry.”
