Speaker: Jonathan Martin  | Equity Partner, Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP

As many employers are all too aware, over the past several years the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has pursued an aggressive agenda, through case decisions and agency rulemaking, to make it easier for labor unions to organize workers and to otherwise expand employee rights to engage in concerted, protected activities.

Now, with the new administration in the White House and new NLRB leadership, a new direction is expected for the Board, at least on some level.

Peter B. Robb was appointed and began his new term as general counsel in November 2017.  He has already signaled significant changes for the agency.  At the same time, organized labor, sensing that its advantages are eroding, have been aggressively using the remaining advantages while they still exist.  Even under a new leader, certain doctrinal changes might remain.

Do you know what changes happened that might affect you?  Do you know what might change in future? Are you prepared for the legal issues at hand?

If not, come join Jonathan Martin for an entertaining and educational look at the future of the National Labor Relations Act, the “new” National Labor Relations Board,  and what they mean for your business.
