The NLRB continues to scrutinize employment practices in both unionized and non-unionized private sector workplaces, including the following practices:
- Requiring employees to enter mandatory arbitration agreements that waive rights to bring class actions about employment disputes.
- Including at-will employment statements or disclaimers in employee handbooks.
- Requesting that employees keep confidential information that is revealed to them during internal investigations.
- Prohibiting employees from posting reputation-damaging comments on social media.
In this program, attendees will learn:
- Factors that the NLRB considers when deciding whether to prosecute unfair labor practices based on these employment practices.
- Legal considerations surrounding these employment practices besides compliance with the National Labor Relations Act.
- What's next on the NLRB's prosecutorial agenda and how employers can prepare.
