The NLRB's expanded joint-employer standard makes it easier for workers to allege that two or more entities are jointly responsible for their employment. This could have significant implications for AHIA members and their clients.
This GT Alert provides a detailed overview of the new standard and its implications for businesses. It also includes specific examples of how the new standard could be applied in different situations.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has proposed a new rule that would ban "misleading" fees and require more prominent disclosures for so-called "junk fees." This rule could have a significant impact on AHIA members, as many of your businesses rely on transparency and fairness in pricing.
The proposed rule would require businesses to clearly and conspicuously disclose the "total price" for their goods or services, including all mandatory fees and charges. It would also prohibit businesses from misrepresenting the nature and purpose of any fee, including whether it is refundable and what good or service it covers.
The FTC is soliciting comments on the proposed rule for 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. AHIA members are encouraged to submit comments to the FTC to share their feedback on the proposed rule and how it could impact their businesses.
