Grantor Of A Concession As An Employer

A concession is the privilege of operating a smaller business within the premises of a larger business. The grantor of a concession is sometimes considered the employer of an injured worker of the smaller business. For example, a department store is considered the statutory employer of workers in a beauty salon that operates on department store premises and as part of the overall business of the department store. Conversely, a theater is not considered the statutory employer of workers with the orchestra performing within the theater. The distinction might turn on whether the concession is an independent attraction of patronage to the larger business.
