Harris Freeman testifies on joint employer standards

Harris Freeman testimony

Harris Freeman, Professor of Labor Law at the Labor Center, testifies about the ‘industrial realities’ of temping and franchising arrangements. In his congressional testimony, Freeman argues for the revival of the traditional, joint-employer standard.

Without such revisions, Freeman argues that “our nation runs the risk of labor law becoming irrelevant in the much of the low-wage economy, where collective bargaining is sorely needed to address the extreme levels of inequality and exploitation currently experienced by millions of American workers.”
