The NLRA’s Impact on Private Employers

On November 8, 2017, the United States Senate confirmed Vermont attorney Peter Robb as the next General Counsel for the National Labor Relations Board.  The General Counsel effectively serves as the Chief Executive Officer of the NLRB, and his appointment may lead to changes in how the NLRB interprets the National Labor Relations Act as it relates to disputes between employers and employees in both union and non-union settings. This is a good time to review what the NLRA is and discuss how employers can avoid inadvertent liability under the NLRA due to their employment policies.
