The National Labor Relations Act? That only applies to unionized employers, right?  Wrong!  The NLRA's guarantee of employees' rights to engage in protected concerted activity and to act for mutual aid and protection applies to almost all US workplaces.  This presentation will cover how the NLRA applies specifically to non-union employers, focusing on the recent actions by the National Labor Relations Board to extend and apply the Act with greater impact in non-union workplaces, particularly with respect to employees' use of social media as a means to comment on the workplace, confidentiality, blogging, and Internet usage policies, solicitation and distribution policies, dress codes, and other matters that arise daily in the non-union workplace.

Date(s) & Time(s): 
Wednesday, June 27, 2012 - 11:30am to 12:45pm
