Department of Labor Joint Employer Proposal

The two parties would be regarded as equally responsible for the illegal employment 
actions of the franchisee if the franchisor:
  • Has the power to hire or fire employees;
  • Supervises and controls the employees’ work schedules or working conditions;
  • Determines employees’ pay rates or methods of payment; or
  • Maintains the employees’ employment record
DOL proposes criteria to determine when franchisor and franchisee are joint employers

"Determines employees’ pay rates or methods of payment"

Does that mean states can be held liable as a joint employer via Minimum wage increases....
