Landmark NLRB Ruling on Joint Employers

Labor & Employment Law Practice Group Teleforum Monday, August 31, 01:00 PMFederalist Society Teleforum Conference Call

In what is being described as a "landmark" ruling by the National Labor Relations Board, a divided NLRB has changed a decades-long approach and made it easier for contract and temporary workers to unionize. The NLRB decision expands the traditional definition of "employee" to include shift workers, contract workers, and other temporary employees. What will the decision mean for workers and employers? Will it impact franchisers? Will it lead to more contested matters, as the NLRB has suggested that it will make further determinations on a case-by-case basis? These and other questions, including questions from the audience, will be addressed on our Teleforum call.

Tale of Two Agencies – Overlapping Jurisdiction of the FCC and FTC

Sponsored by the Federalist Society's Telecommunications & Electronic Media Practice Group Wednesday, September 02, 12:00 PMNational Press Club - Holeman Lounge
529 14th Street NW
Washington, DC 20045

With the adoption of the Open Internet Order, the Federal Communications Commission has potentially waded into areas that have historically been within the Federal Trade Commission’s jurisdiction. How are privacy, consumer protection, and technology policy issues currently being handled by the agencies – do their actions complement each other or are they creating regulatory tension and uncertainty? If there is a turf war going on, will Congress step in or will the courts decide? How does it impact competition policies and consumer protection? Join FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai and FTC Commissioner Maureen Ohlhausen as they engage in a moderated discussion about these and other issues relating to the respective roles of their agencies.


  • Hon. Maureen K. Ohlhausen, Federal Trade Commission
  • Hon. Ajit V. Pai, Federal Communications Commission
  • Moderator: Alexander Okuliar, Partner, Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP
