Third Circuit Finds Private Healthcare Facility and Its Operator to be Single Employer for Liability Under the NLRA

In a recent decision, Grane Health Care v. NLRB, the Third Circuit ruled that a private healthcare facility and its operator – in which it has a 99.5% ownership stake and a near complete overlap of company officers – are a single employer subject to the National Labor Relations Act (the “Act” or “NLRA”). Accordingly, the two entities were found to be jointly and severally liable for remedying unfair labor practices committed by either of them.
