Join Morgan Lewis’s NLRB practitioners for a roundtable-style webinar dissecting the decisions and interpreting the implications for union and nonunion employers.

A number of new and important case decisions from the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) confront employers as Chairman Philip Miscimarra’s term comes to a close. We will discuss the extremely important new board developments in:

  1. Hy-Brand – return of the prior joint employer standard, after the reversal of Browning Ferris

  2. Boeing – instituting an entirely new test for evaluating whether employer rules and policies are lawful, including those commonly found in employer handbooks, policy manuals, employment agreements, and codes of conduct

  3. PCC Structurals – return to traditional bargaining unit standards, after the reversal of Specialty Healthcare

  4. Raytheon – return to prior standard for determining whether an employer must negotiate over actions that are consistent with past practice, including healthcare benefit changes, after the reversal of DuPont

  5. UPMC – settling NLRB General Counsel prosecutions through a “consent agreement” or “consent judgment” process

  6. Election Rules Request For Information – request for information from the public on whether the revised union election rules of 2014 be (a) retained without change; (b) retained with modifications; or (c) rescinded.
