NLRB General Counsel Signals Major Shift on Neutrality Agreements (December 2019) - A Trending News interview from Employment Law This Week®, featuring attorney Adam Abrahms, Member of the Firm: The General Counsel for the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has signaled what could be a major shift in the NLRB’s position on so-called “neutrality agreements,” in which employers make concessions and accommodations to unions that seek to organize and represent their employees.
NLRB: No Confidentiality Around Arbitration Proceedings - Employment Law This Week (Episode 69: Week of April 24, 2017) has released bonus footage of its interview with Adam C. Abrahms, a Member of the Firm at Epstein Becker Green. As Mr. Abrahms discusses, the NLRB has ruled that employees have the right to discuss arbitration proceedings with colleagues and may not be required to arbitrate claims under the NLRA. The Board found that Dish Network violated the Act when it tried to prohibit an employee from discussing his suspension and an arbitration brought against him. The Board also concluded that the company's arbitration agreement violated the Act, because employees could believe it prohibited them from filing charges with the NLRB and other agencies.
