The NLRB’s recent actions have changed the labor landscape for non-union employers. The Board’s “quickie” election rule, set to go into effect April 14, 2015, will dramatically shrink the period of time employers have to respond to union organizing. And as a result of the NLRB’s recent decision in Purple Communications, employees may now usurp employer email systems for non-work-related communications.

On Tuesday, February 17 at 12 p.m. EST, John DiNome and I will present a teleseminar: “No Union, No Worries? What non-union employers need to know about the NLRB to stay non-union.” We’ll discuss practical steps that employers can take to protect themselves in the wake of the NLRB’s rulings. The program will cover:

  • Understanding the threat to non-unionized workplaces
  • Re-writing email and electronic-use policies in the wake of Purple Communications
  • Developing a union-avoidance strategy before an election petition is filed

This teleseminar is part of Reed Smith’s ongoing series, "What Employers Need To Know in 2015." We invite employers to register here.
