WASHINGTON, D.C. — Late Friday night, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce obtained a major legal victory for American businesses of all sizes, including franchises and contractors, employers, and workers after the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas vacated the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) joint employer rule. U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Suzanne P. Clark issued the following statement:  

"This ruling is a major win for employers and workers who don't want their business decisions micromanaged by the NLRB. It will prevent businesses from facing new liabilities related to workplaces they don’t control, and workers they don’t actually employ. The U.S. Chamber will continue to fight back against the NLRB and its campaign to promote unionization at all costs.”

This is the third major legal victory the U.S. Chamber has secured in the past seven months in its fight against the Administration’s far-reaching and aggressive regulatory agenda. In September 2023, the Chamber won its challenge against the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Unfair, Deceptive, or Abusive Acts or Practices section of its exam manual, and in December 2023, the Chamber won its challenge over the Securities and Exchange Commission’s stock buyback rules.
