BrightStar Care’s Co-Founder and CEO, Shelly Sun had a vision and began franchising in 2005. Her business has grown to over a $300 million with franchises in over 300 locations.
Being a leader in the home care franchise business Shelly has currently been at the forefront of opposing an NLRB Joint-Employer ruling. This latest anti-business ruling by the National Labor Relations Board has the franchise industry worried that this ruling could be the end of the independent business model.

When it comes to the recent National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) joint-employer ruling, there is a clear line drawn in the sand. On one side, those that believe the franchisor should be held liable for routine business decisions of individual franchisees and on the other, those that believe that this type of ruling could abolish the independent business model all together.
“The recent decision is not taking all of the factors into consideration if it was applied to the franchise business model and that is the way the NLRB is signaling that it may go,” says Sun. “NLRB overreach and new definition of joint employer applied to the franchising business model would mean that franchisees are no longer the decision makers which makes it harder for them to grow and prevents them from ultimately hiring more employees.”
