Business partners handshaking after meeting

A joint employment is when two or more businesses share control and supervision of an employee’s activity.

For example, joint employment happens with temp and staffing agencies; employees who are employed through staffing agencies are typically monitored by the staffing agency and by the business they’re working for.

Joint employment used in a sentence: I’m under joint employment because I’m employed with a temp agency, but my contract is with another business.
