The Changing Winds of Labor Law - What the Change in Administration Can Mean
Elections have consequences and in no other area is that more true than in the labor law context. With each administration, a new balance of priorities emerges and sets policy for the nation. President Elect Biden has messaged that many of the positions taken by the National Labor Relations Board during the Obama administration will return as the “law” and will apply the labor peace obligations of the National Labor Relations Act. Are you ready for these changes? Have you considered how changes in the approach of the NLRB may affect your operations and/or your relationship with your Union?
Bob Simandl and John Rubin will discuss the changes that are likely forthcoming and the actions to take now in crafting your labor policy or negotiations terms. Bob and John will address:
- What is the future of “Right to Work” under the Biden administration?
- New Election Rules – the return of “Quickie Elections”
- Abusive Workplace Behavior – is uncivil behavior “protected conduct?”
- Management Rights
- What is the new definition of Protected Concerted Activity?
- Email Systems – available for Union activity communications and the integration with Electronic Security Policies
- Off Duty access to the facility – restricted access concerns
- Employee Handbooks and non-union employee rights under the NLRA
The presenters will address where the law is going from the indicators to this point and provide practical tips for employers to protect business operations and maintain a civil workplace.
