View* this free webinar, which will explain how the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has emerged to be a force to be reckoned with for the non-unionized workplace. The NLRB is taking aggressive steps affecting non-union employers by striking down employer policies seen as "chilling" or restricting non-union employees' right to engage in protected activity.
View this free webinar presented by Melissa Gonzalez-Boyce of XpertHR, to learn what type of non-union activity is considered protected under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and why some otherwise boilerplate and routine handbook policies are being found unlawful. Understand how social media and email is changing the way non-union employees are permitted to "discuss" working conditions and how employers may lawfully restrict such activity. Practical examples of real life cases will be presented in order to fully grasp the application of the NLRA to certain situations. Also, learn how and why any attempt to discipline or terminate a non-union employee for engaging in protected activity could result in NLRB sanctions. Join us for this informative discussion to learn how to keep your workplace compliant with the NLRA and avert the ever-growing reach of the NLRB.
