NLRB is poised to find 'joint employer' relationships just about everywhere
JD Supra Business Adviser
On July 29, Richard Griffin, General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board, announced his intention to charge McDonald's USA, LLC, as a "joint employer" with its franchisees in a series of unfair labor practice charges arising from employee protests. This move, along with the General Counsel's position in a pending case that Browning-Ferris Industries is a joint employer with its temporary employee provider, signals the GC's desire to reverse 30 years of established Board precedent concerning the legal standard for "joint employer" status. As a result, business models based on franchised operations, use of temporary employees, outsourcing of operations, and similar separations of the employer-employee relationship are all likely to be affected.

Transforming traditional recruiting with predictive technology
The old way of finding, obtaining and hiring prospective candidates has become antiquated and inefficient for HR departments. With talent wars becoming increasingly competitive, HR must look to adopt transformative technologies that rely on data-driven analytics and insights to identify and attract candidates who have the most potential to be good cultural fits and evolve into competent loyal employees. To reach this point requires moving away from the old-school transactional method of recruiting.

Creating and marketing an employment brand to attract talent
We all know that recruiting is about connecting with candidates on multiple levels: practical, emotional, and aspirational. Employment branding and marketing can make a big contribution toward that. Today many recruiting organizations still see “recruitment marketing” as optimizing their job board strategy. But there is so much more that can be done with a true employment branding strategy. Getting this right will help you stand out in your market, generate pipelines more easily, and most importantly of all attract the top talent in your industry.
