Last week saw key movement from the Trump administration on labor regulations.
On Dec. 14, the National Labor Relations Board reversed an Obama-era ruling on co-employment. As the Staffing Industry Daily News reports, the board returned to a previous standard when determining companies must actually exercise control of workers in order to be deemed co-employers, rather than the Obama interpretation that reserving the right of control signified joint-employment.
Meanwhile, CNNmoney reports the administration is poised to revoke a rule allowing spouses of H-1B visa-holders to work while in the US, among other changes it is recommending to the H-1B visa program. While spouses may pursue other avenues of work authorization, the Obama-era rule granting authorization is on the chopping block.
