At Mullin Law, each of the lawyers and paralegals has a deeply ingrained knowledge of franchise law and a strong tie to the franchise industry.

In 2014, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) identified McDonald's USA LLC as a joint employer, raising concerns of franchisors about Joint Employer Liability. Increasingly, employees are suing several companies under the premise of joint employer liability. This is more common with staffing companies, subcontractors and franchisees and is often based upon a written agreement that provides intent.
Hence, companies may be unaware of the risk of suit due to signed agreements. Such companies should ensure the effectiveness of their written agreements to protect against joint employer liability and specifically identify the employer and assign control of the employees to the employer.
In a two hour live Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the risks of Joint Employer Liability and help attendees understand how to mitigate risks in contracts and business practice.
Key topics include:
- Joint Employer Liability - An Overview
- Requirements for Joint Employment
- Benefits of Employees in Joint Employment
- Obligations of Employers
- Direct and Indirect Control Over Out-sourced Labor
- Best Practices to Avoid Joint Employer Liability
