POLITICO Morning Shift featured a Management Memo blog post, titled, “NLRB Board Members Signal Intention to Reconsider Board Law on Confidentiality of Settlement Agreements and to Modify the Board’s Blocking Charge “Rule,”” authored by Steven M. Swirsky, a Member of the Firm in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management and Health Care and Life Sciences practices, in the firm’s New York office.

Following is an excerpt:
