Fran DeLuca, Member of the Firm, co-presents "McLaren Macomb: Implications for Employers and Employees" at the spring breakfast meeting of the Greater Rhode Island Chapter of the Labor and Employment Relations Association (GRI LERA).

The National Labor Relations Board’s recent decision in McLaren Macomb, 372 NLRB No. 58, altered the landscape concerning confidentiality and non-disparagement provisions in severance agreements. The general counsel’s memorandum interpreting it, Memorandum GC 23-05, suggests that the decision may have far-reaching consequences and impact other provisions in severance and other agreements, including non-solicitation clauses and releases of liability. The presenters will address what the decision means for employers and employees, both in unionized and non-unionized workforces, and the status of confidentiality and non-disparagement provisions in employee handbooks, severance agreements, separation agreements, and other workplace documents in light of the decision and other legal developments at the federal and state level.
