GCCA Supports the Save Local Business Act

GCCA joined over 65 other business groups in sending a letter to Senator Roger Marshall (R-KS) and Representative James Comer (R-KY) expressing our strong support for the Save Local Business Act, which they both have sponsored. This bill would amend the National Labor Relations Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act to make clear that an employer may be considered a joint employer in relation to an employee only if such employer directly, actually, and immediately, and not in a limited and routine manner, exercises significant control over the essential terms and conditions of employment. This legislation comes at a critical time in the economic recovery when so many small businesses are emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic and are seeking legal clarity to help them grow their businesses, create jobs, serve their communities and meet local, state and federal obligations to their employees, customers and the general public.
