New Union Rules and Rulings: Proactive Strategies for Employers Facing Today’s Aggressive National Labor Relations Board and New Expedited Representation Elections
April 14, 2015 – Hilton Westchester, Rye Brook, New York
May 7, 2015 – The L.A. Hotel Downtown, Los Angeles, California
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has adopted dramatic new rules and processes for union representation elections scheduled to take effect on April 14, 2015. The NLRB has also changed many of its standards concerning workplace rules, handbooks and policies affecting ALL EMPLOYERS, not only unionized workplaces.
This interactive workshop will address critical headline issues developing from today’s aggressive, union-friendly NLRB and provide innovative techniques and proactive and preventive strategies to prepare and respond to these developments. Specifically, our speakers will explain and offer tactics on:
- New election rules that will bring fast elections in small units, with limited opportunity for employers to present both sides to employees and resolve key questions before a vote
- NLRB’s evolving and expansive definition of joint employers including franchisors and franchisees
- Developing and enforcing handbooks, policies, practices and work rules, including use of email, social media, and protection of confidential information that will withstand the NLRB’s increasing scrutiny
- NLRB’s expanding view of protected concerted activity, including social media, workplace confrontations, class action waivers and other recent NLRB decisions
The fee to attend this briefing is $50 for the first person and $25 for each additional person from the same organization. The fee includes breakfast, workshop materials, and lunch. Overnight accommodations can be arranged directly with the hotel.
