Read NFIB’s positions on labor issues affecting small business:

Small business owners know that employees are their most valuable resource. Small business owners work hard to train and retain employees by creating a rewarding workplace. However, government rules and regulations have made labor issues more complicated than ever.

Small businesses operate differently than large businesses; they do not have human-resources departments to track the changing standards and mandates that affect their workforce and workplace.

NFIB urges Congress to simplify the employment process for small business, eliminate burdensome mandates and prevent cumbersome regulations that inhibit job creation.

NFIB Pushes Back Against Big Labor Agenda

NFIB is greatly concerned about the pro-labor policies the NLRB and U.S. Labor Department have put forward. NFIB is fighting both in Congress and the courts to make sure the NLRB fulfills its original mission to be an impartial moderator between businesses and unions.


FLSA/Overtime Reform

NFIB supports updating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to give workers flexibility and to permit employers to reward workers financially for improving productivity and profitability.


Unemployment Insurance Reform

NFIB supports eliminating the Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA) “surtax,” lowering the FUTA tax and returning the unemployment insurance system to the states.
