Testimonials

This is a very important website. I am a Union worker but an American First and the idea of open/non-private voting is repugnant to me. It flies in the face of American tradition where your vote is and should be CONFIDENTIAL. Most Union employees feel as I do and they need to know what this is all about. As far as I know, I hope, this sort of thing is not happening in the Union to which I belong. If I find out it is I will protest. All I can say is keep up the good work. I will pass this around to everyone I can. They cannot intimidate me.

This has been very helpful and informative. I have sent this info to others as well. I think it is accurate and timely!

Informative on current events, trends and pending actions of unions, congress, NLRB, Administration and business community (Chamber, etc.). Helpful for small business owners and management who don't have the time for a daily "watch" of the critical players in this milieu.

Refining The Definition of “Employee”

Brishen Rogers

Brishen Rogers

Pro-union law professor and former SEIU organizer Brishen Rogers has penned a treatise for the American Constitution Society suggesting legislative changes to “expand and clarify” the meaning of the term “employment.” His suggestions include:

  1. Redefine employment per the “suffer or permit” test and specify that the “suffer or permit” test defines employment very broadly;
  2. Define workers in certain highly fissured industries as the legal employees of firms who contract with them individually for labor, and/or the joint employees of user firms who obtain their labor through subcontracting or franchising arrangements;
  3. Develop concrete guidance for courts to apply in other industries, or direct an expert agency to do the same; and
  4. Place the burden of proof on the party seeking to avoid employment status and implement other procedural and remedial reforms.
