Featuring: John C. Romeo

Under the Obama administration, the NLRB issued several groundbreaking decisions that tilted the labor-management playing field in favor of organized labor. The current NLRB has not hesitated to revert to well-established positions on a variety of key issues to better level the playing field. This discussion will address the Board’s current position on several of these issues, which impact both union and non-union employers, and potential future challenges, including:

  • Whether your workplace policies are lawful
  • Whether you can require employees to keep workplace investigations confidential
  • Whether you can limit your employees’ use of your computer systems to business purposes only
  • Whether you are a joint employer
  • Whether an individual is an employee or independent contractor
  • What constitutes protected concerted activity
  • What rules apply to union elections
  • What changes there have been to the collective-bargaining process
