On Friday evening, U.S. District Judge J. Campbell Barker of the Eastern District of Texas vacated the National Labor Relations Board’s recent rule on determining the standard for joint-employer status and the Board’s rescission of the 2020 joint-employer rule. Judge Barker had previously stayed the joint-employer rule until March 11, 2024.

“The District Court’s decision to vacate the Board’s rule is a disappointing setback, but is not the last word on our efforts to return our joint-employer standard to the common law principles that have been endorsed by other courts,” said Chairman Lauren McFerran. “The Agency is reviewing the decision and actively considering next steps in this case.”
