Turbulent Times in Labor Law: Webinar Series Explores How Court Ruling May Impact NLRB and its 2012 Decisions
March 21, 2013

From the use of social media to disclosure about internal investigations, over the past year the National Labor Relations Board ruled on many issues affecting employee conduct. Numerous decisions have significantly interfered with the ability of union and nonunion employers alike to enforce work rules. However, a recent court ruling could upend this trend. More than 200 NLRB decisions could become unenforceable if subsequent court decisions agree that the Board acted without a quorum because most members were not properly appointed.

In this two-part CLE webinar, attorneys from our Labor, Employment and Employee Benefits Practice will review the Board’s 2012 decisions on these and other matters – including arbitration, confidentiality, workplace access, at-will disclaimers and civility rules – and explain potential changes that could result from the Noel Canning v. NLRB case. The first webinar will focus primarily on NLRB decisions affecting both union and nonunion employers. The second webinar will continue that theme, as well as take a closer look at key decisions affecting union employers.

Partner Harriet E. Cooperman and Special Counsel Edward R. Levin and will give the presentations and answer questions during these live, 90-minute web broadcasts, which will start at 12 p.m. If you would like more information, please contact Christine Lautenbacher at clautenbacher@saul.com or 215-972-1885.
