Developments at the National Labor Relations Board and Their Impact on Employers And Franchisors

Webinar Only

Program Overview:

December saw a number of changes at the National Labor Relations Board ("Board"). At the beginning of the month, the new General Counsel issued a memo signaling potential changes in the Board's position on a number of issues. Shortly thereafter, Chairman Phillip Miscimarra (whose last day on the Board was December 16), with the help of Republican Members Marvin Kaplan and William Emanuel, issued a flurry of decisions overturning many of the Obama Board's landmark labor relations decisions.

During the presentation, we reviewed the recent General Counsel memo and recent decisions from the Board, including those relating to its joint employer standard, workplace policies and employee handbook rules, micro-unit bargaining rules, and an employer's ability to implement unilateral changes.
