The NLRB can review and decide if employers’ policies and handbooks violate the law – whether you are a non-union or a union employer. On Aug. 2, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued a highly anticipated ruling in Stericycle, Inc. This decision changes the NLRB’s procedure for determining if your rules are unlawful. Importantly, this new standard will be used to judge if your rules governing standards or behavior, civility, social media use – and any other policies – meet legal standards. This decision is a sea change in the NLRB’s scrutiny of your policies.
Join Taft for a webinar discussion of the legal implications of this ruling – and some tips on what employers can do next.
We will cover:
- National Labor Relations Act basics: who is covered, what is protected, and application to union and non-union workforces.
- Guidance on employers’ next steps, including best practices for reexamining employee handbooks and conduct rules. How should you review your handbooks and policies now?
