26 September 2011Employment Alert
In Specialty Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center of Mobile, 357 NLRB No. 83 (August 2011), the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled that certified nursing assistants (CNAs) at a non-union nursing home and rehabilitation center may comprise an appropriate bargaining unit without including all other nonsupervisory, nonprofessional service and maintenance employees.
