Browning-Ferris is a waste recycling facility in a small city in California that contracted with job placement agency Leadpoint to staff part of its facility and provide human resources. Browning-Ferris however had the ultimate authority to fire an employee, and Leadpoint was required to follow Browning-Ferris guidelines on who to hire, working hours, wages, etc.
This arrangement of a couple of hundred employees surprisingly led to one of the worst decisions by the politically appointed National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
