2011 has marked one of the National Labor Relations Board's most active years in recent history. The Obama NLRB has handed down rulings that legitimize so-called "bannering" demonstrations and make it easier for unions to organize, added a twist to the growing list of legal issues involving employees' use of social media, and issued a new rule requiring employers to post notices of employee rights under the National Labor Relations Act. This is coupled with evolving activity on the part of unions, including the increased use of corporate campaigns to damage a company's brand and reputation in order to compel the employer to accept unionization.
This 90-minute webinar will analyze the new labor law landscape – which affects both employers with unionized workforces and those without – with a focus on the Board's recent actions and a look at where things might be heading in the future.
