The HR Policy Association (“HRPA” or “Association”) is a public policy advocacy
organization representing the chief human resource officers of major employers. HRPA consists
of more than 375 of the largest corporations doing business in the United States and globally.
Collectively, their companies employ more than 10 million employees in the United States, nearly
9 percent of the private sector workforce. Since its founding, one of HRPA’s principle missions
has been to ensure that laws and policies affecting human resources are sound, practical, and
responsive to labor and employment issues arising in the workplace.
The Association previously submitted comments during the initial comment period for
consideration by the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB” or “Board”) in connection with the
Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Request for Comments, published in the Federal Register on
September 24, 2018, related to the joint employer standard applicable under the National Labor
Relations Act (“NLRA” or “Act”), hereafter “Notice”.1
