Responsible employers develop policies to govern workplace conduct. Such policies are embodied in handbooks and other documents which help employees understand expectations and the consequences of failing to meet those expectations. The vast majority of employers draft these policies using common-sense practicality and may even seek legal review. However, many employers do not consider how their policies might be viewed by the National Labor Relations Board, a relatively obscure federal governmental agency. Over the past 20 years, many employer policies have been attacked as unlawful before the NLRB. In turn, the NLRB has found seemingly innocuous policies to be unlawful even when the goal, and language of the policy, have nothing to do with employee rights under the National Labor Relations Act. This course discusses the constantly changing law, the consequences of a violation, and provides important information about maintaining lawful handbook policies governing workplace conduct.
This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.
Key topics to be discussed:
- NLRA – a review of employee rights under Section 7 of the ACT
- How employee rights have been viewed through the lens of employer policies
- How the NLRB has treated these policies and the consequences of finding a violation
