Concurrent Session
Where Does the NLRB Go from Here?
Room: Congressional B
Tuesday 03/19/2019 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM Add to calendar
1.00 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: HR Expertise
Workplace Application:
Learn about pending and expected activity before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) that will impact work, workplaces and the worker.  

The NLRB continues to pursue an active agenda with significant implications for employers across most industries and sectors. Under the Trump administration, the board has made a concerted effort to pull back numerous workplace rules and decisions implemented under the previous administration that made organizing easier, including a focus on nonunion workplaces and increased scrutiny of whether employer policies interfere with employees’ right to organize under the National Labor Relations Act. Yet, conflict-of-interest determinations are playing an outsized role with this board’s ability to rule on these and other critical issues pertinent to the workplace. This session will explore key decisions pending before the board and the impact they may have on the workplace. Topics to be covered include:

  • Implications on recent NPRM on joint-employer. 
  • Implications on long-term activity centered on “ambush” election rules. 
  • Long-term outlook for the NLRB.
