The National Labor Relations Act – Not Just for Unions Anymore

You may be asking – does the NLRA affect us? And the answer is – yes. That’s because, in addition to the right to form and be represented by a Union, the NLRA also creates the right for employees to “engage in other concerted activities” for their mutual aid or protection.

Under a series of NLRB decisions, an Employer may violate the NLRA merely by adopting and publishing a work rule that has a chilling effect on employees’ concerted activities. Even if a rule does not explicitly prohibit concerted activities, however, it will still be found unlawful if employees would reasonably construe the rule’s language to prohibit concerted activities. This presentation will cover what types of policies the NLRB is focusing on and what you can do as an employer to minimize your liability under the NLRA with respect to these policies.
