Webinar: Don't Be Ambushed by New NLRB Election Rules

Jonathan Segal, Duane Morris LLP

Employers cannot afford to ignore the latest developments involving the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). The NLRB has issued its new election rules, and they pose a host of challenges for employers.

But this is not the only gift the NLRB has given organized labor. The Board also has approved micro units that are easier for unions to organize; given union organizers the right to use the employer's e-mail system during non-working time; and narrowed the definition of a statutory supervisor, which are the employers' first line of defense.

Longtime Philadelphia employment attorney Jonathan Segal, a partner at Duane Morris, details the NLRB's efforts to help unions, including an in-depth look at the new election rules, and then takes you through the five key steps to minimizing your company's exposure to union activity:

  • Training statutory supervisors;
  • Preparing a rapid response team and plan;
  • Proactively educating employees;
  • Utilizing union "inhibitors," such as off-duty conduct rules; and
  • Ensuring healthy employee relations.
