Original Program: 34th Annual North Carolina/South Carolina Labor & Employment Law Program, October 12-13, 2018
The past year has brought significant change at the National Labor Relations Board and in the field of traditional labor law.
In addition to experiencing turnover, the Board issued a number of high-profile decisions during December 2017. Also, in December 2017, General Counsel Robb indicated his office’s priorities in Memorandum 18-02, “Mandatory Submissions to Advice,” which rescinded guidance issued by his predecessor and instructed regional offices to submit certain cases to his office for advice. The Board has also signaled its intent to review other key legal standards. In March 2018, the Board requested information on the 2014 rule concerning representation case procedures. Last month, the Board published a draft rule regarding the joint employer standard. Beyond the Board, the Supreme Court recently decided two cases with far-reaching implications for both unions and employers.
Indeed, labor law has experienced much change in the last year and trends suggest that more change is likely to come.
This session discusses these changes to include case summaries.
