Following is an excerpt:
Horror movies aren’t the only things frightening management-side employment attorneys this Halloween. Recent agency actions and court rulings have unleashed speedy union elections, altered relationships for joint employers and set up ways to bypass classwide arbitration, all moves that attorneys say could lead to more than a few employment-related scares.
The National Labor Relations Board and the courts are part of an overall legal landscape that leave employers and their attorneys awake at night, according to Marc A. Mandelman of Epstein Becker Green.
“The employment law landscape is disturbing and becoming increasingly so,” Mandelman said.
Not only is there a growing number of pro-worker rulings and governmental enforcement initiatives, there is also increasing legislative activism at the state and local level, creating a patchwork of disparate laws and requirements that employers operating in multiple jurisdictions have to reconcile, according to Mandelman.
