With the advent of the National Grid lockout and teacher strikes around the country, the past year has been a time of heightened labor activity. At the same time, the National Labor Relations Board and the Supreme Court have issued important decisions impacting the rights of workers and employers around the company. These decisions affect the practice of labor and employment law in all workplaces, whether or not a union is present.
The expert panel will provide both employer and union perspectives on these major legal developments, such as the Supreme Court’s decision on class action waivers in arbitration agreements and the NLRB’s decisions affecting which employers and employees are covered by the National Labor Relations Act and what protections attach to employees in non-unionized workplaces. In addition to discussing how these developments affect the day-to-day practice of labor and employment law, the panel will supply insight into how these developments relate to recent labor activity and what they will mean for employers and unions going forward.
