The National Labor Relations Board has been active in recent months deciding cases, issuing new regulations and embarking on initiatives that are going to significantly impact union and non-union employers alike. These recent developments reflect the pro-union bias of the "Obama Board" and contain significant risks for the unwary employer. Both unionized and non-unionized companies need to understand the changes in the law being made by the NLRB, particularly since most of the initiatives are directed at workplaces where no union has ever ventured.

Please join us on June 13, 2012 for a discussion of the most significant developments. During our program we will cover the following issues:

  1. How is the NLRB defining protected concerted activity and how does this affect union and non-union employers?

  2. What is the NLRB's position today with regard to your employees' use of social media and your right to control these media?

  3. Do your employee handbook policies violate the National Labor Relations Act?

  4. What is the status of the NLRB’s proposed rules regarding quicker union elections?

  5. How has the NLRB changed the rules for deciding what is an "appropriate bargaining unit" and how will that make it easier for a union to organize your workplace and win an election?

  6. Can you adopt a mandatory arbitration policy without violating the National Labor Relations Act?

  7. What is the status of the NLRB’s proposed rules requiring you to post a notice in your workplace describing your employees’ rights to organize a union?
