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.”
