For years, many non-union employers didn't think about the National Labor Relations Act because the NLRB was focused on employers and their union-represented employees. That focus has shifted! The NLRA covers a lot more than union activity and collective-bargaining, and its sometimes arcane rules can trip up even the most conscientious employers. Recent actions by the NLRB haven't made things easier, as many social media policies, confidentiality rules, and other handbook provisions have been challenged and found to violate the NLRA—in non-union workplaces! On top of that, recent changes to NLRB rules could catch some employers by surprise.
In this seminar, DWT Labor and Employment attorneys Kelsey Sheldon and Peter Finch explained how employers can effectively manage their employees without fear of violating the NLRA.
Topics covered included:
- Identify when and how your company might be affected by the NLRA
- Craft a social media policy that protects your employees' and your company's rights
- Regulate your workforce without interference from the NLRB
