Joint employment occurs when an individual is employed by at least two entities, which are responsible together, and individually, for compliance with employment regulations.
Joint employment exists under several conditions, such as when a person works for two related companies, that are separate entities. Joint employment also happens when one corporation provides employees to another, although both companies are financially separate and pay workers individually. Employers must comply with both the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act under instances of joint employment. Both employers share responsibility and are accountable for compliance under all applicable regulations.
