The National Labor Relations Act, and decades of shifting regulatory guidance, have created a minefield for the unwary employment lawyer. Whether the workplace is non-union, unionized or somewhere between, the act impacts everything from handbooks to leave policies, from discipline to employee representation. Join a panel of labor and employment law experts to learn the basics of labor law, and what the employment lawyer needs to know when representing an employer or employee in non-union, unionizing and fully-unionized workforces. This program will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 16, from noon-2 p.m., at the MBA in Boston.
The panel aims to educate employment lawyers on the basics of the National Labor Relations Act and its intersection with employment law practice. The presentation will be broken into five sections:
- A brief overview of labor law and the NLRA and NLRB
- Labor law in the non-union workplace (for example, employee handbooks, employee speech, solicitation by or for unions, union “salt” hires)
- Labor law in the unionizing workplace (for example, union campaigns, employer unfair labor practices, extent of participation in elections)
- Labor law in the union workplace (for example, collective bargaining, benefit laws and preemption by NLRA and collective bargaining agreements, grievance and arbitration, and the duty of fair representation)
- Question & answer session
This program is geared toward employment lawyers who have a limited understanding of labor law and would be appropriate for new attorneys looking to practice in either area.
