A rush of activity at the NLRB before Member Nancy Schiffer's term ends on December 16 will provide presents for organized labor and lumps of coal for management. Find out how these actions will affect your business.

In this webinar, we will cover the following:

  • New Expedited Election Rules: The new rules will take effect on April 14, 2015 and will accelerate election timelines, making it far easier for unions to organize employees. Our experts will address how the rules will change the playing field, and also some of the anticipated challenges the rules may face. Check out our alert on the topic here.
  • Purple Communications: Employers used to think that they owned their email systems and could limit their use to company business. That is, until Thursday, December 11, when NLRB ruled “not so.” While challenges to the decision are expected in federal courts, Seyfarth attorneys will address the real time/real world impact of the Board’s decision, and discuss what employers can do in the meantime to establish beneficial policies regarding employees’ use of email. Check out our alert on the topic here.
  • More to Come: We expect to see more news from the Board as Member Schiffer’s term ends on December 16. The Seyfarth team will be ready to address any additional major developments as they arise, both via this webinar, our client alerts, and our blog, Employer Labor Relations.
