Join Practical Law Company for a free 75-minute webinar in which top NLRB prosecutor, Lafe Solomon, and Steven M. Swirsky, Epstein Becker & Green, P.C. will discuss their respective views on the latest NLRB initiatives and developments. 

The NLRB continues to scrutinize employment practices in both unionized and non-unionized private sector workplaces, including the following practices:

  • Requiring employees to enter mandatory arbitration agreements that waive rights to bring class actions about employment disputes.
  • Including at-will employment statements or disclaimers in employee handbooks.
  • Requesting that employees keep confidential information that is revealed to them during internal investigations.
  • Prohibiting employees from posting reputation-damaging comments on social media.

In this program, attendees will learn:

  • Factors that the NLRB considers when deciding whether to prosecute unfair labor practices based on these employment practices.
  • Legal considerations surrounding these employment practices besides compliance with the National Labor Relations Act.
  • What’s next on the NLRB’s prosecutorial agenda and how employers can prepare.
