The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has issued a number of decisions and rule changes that will have a significant impact on all non-union and partially unionized Employers. These changes include the following:
Requirement that Employers post an official government notice effective January 31, 2012 (previously November 14, 2011), advising employees of their right to unionize and engage in strikes and other activities.
Recent decisions expanding employees’ rights which call into question certain broad Employer HR policies dealing with social media and harassment.
An August 30, 2011, decision making it easier for unions to organize by allowing them to call for an election among smaller groups of employees where union support may be stronger, including employees in a single job classification.
Proposed rule changes to drastically shorten the time period between a union’s request for an election to represent your employees and the date of the election, thereby limiting the Employer’s ability and right to address important issues about the voting unit prior to the vote.
On November 3, 2011, Jackson Lewis attorneys will discuss these recent NLRB developments and focus on a practical, common sense approach that will enable you to prepare for these changes. You will learn how to take preventive steps to comply with the law through management training and employee education that will avoid unnecessary interference and disruption to your business.
