This session will provide an overview of the NLRB's recent activity and how it affects all companies, whether union or non-union. 

The National Labor Relations Board continues to expand employee rights under the National Labor Relations Act for both union and non-union workers. This session will address strategic changes you should consider in light of the ever-expanding definition of protected concerted activity, how to minimize the risk of joint employment and multi-employer bargaining units when using temporary staffing agencies, vendors, and contractors, preparing handbook language, agreements and policies under the NLRA in light of recent guidance, and much more. This session will also provide 10 proactive and strategic steps every employer (union and non-union alike) should consider in light of the significant changes over the previous 12 months. This session will provide you with:

  • An overview of labor law trends and how they affect your company. 
  • An understanding of the strategic changes you should consider in the ever-expanding definition of protected concerted activity. 
  • Practical recommendations to bring back to your company.
