Please join us for the next edition of Third Thursday – Crowell & Moring’s Labor and Employment Update, a webinar series dedicated to helping our clients stay on top of developing law and emerging compliance issues.
Employers who do not have unionized employees often overlook traditional labor law issues. That can be short-sighted, as many of the requirements of the National Labor Relations Act apply to all employers, whether unionized or not. For example, all employees have the right to engage in protected, concerted activity, such as discussions with others about the terms and conditions of their employment. In recent years, there have been varied approaches by the NLRB in resolving disputes over employer policies and practices that might limit employee rights. Some of the decisions issued in the last several months are good news for non-union employers; others continue to provide mixed signals.
During this webinar, we will discuss recent traditional labor law issues that impact non-union employers. We will discuss issues related to employee use of company email and equipment, employee statements to the media, confidentiality in company investigations, limits to accessing private property by non-employees, and employer policies on arbitration of workplace disputes. We will also address new developments for employers who may face unionizing efforts by employees in the near future.
This webinar is scheduled for February 20, 2020, at 12:00 pm Eastern. We hope that you can join us and participate in a lively discussion of these issues.
