From the article...
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has likely thrown a mammoth monkey wrench in the traditional hotel franchisor/franchisee model... Under the new standard, a finding of joint employment is much broader, and only requires that a business exercise “indirect” (or potential) control over workers. Hence, under the new test, a company may not only be held liable for its own labor violations, but also for those of the other entity.
