On Wednesday, January 21st at 12 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. Central Time, Jeffrey Berman, Ron Kramer, Mary Kay Klimesh and Bryan Bienias will present the webinar: Recent NLRB Decisions and Labor Law Issues Affecting the Academic Employer.
The webinar will address timely labor law issues presently impacting academic employers including:
The NLRB’s recent decision in Pacific Lutheran University attempting to redefine two issues important to private academic employers at all levels: (i) the circumstances in which the NLRB will process an election petition filed by faculty members of a religious college or university, and (ii) when faculty are exempt as managerial employees pursuant to the Supreme Court’s holding in in Yeshiva University.
The status of the national push to organize adjunct faculty.
Organization efforts targeting graduate teaching assistants and the continued viability of the Brown University rule.
The impact of the NLRB’s ruling in Specialty Healthcare on bargaining units in the education sector.
Student athletes and union organization efforts–the pending question before the NLRB.
- The impact of the NLRB’s recently announced “quickie” election rules on the academic employer.
This webinar will be of particular interest to schools with adjunct or part-time faculty, schools with graduate assistants, and religious schools of all levels.
