NLRA Mandates:
The Rules ALL Employers Must Follow

NLRA Compliance

You can’t bar pay disclosure or criticism at work, new rules say.

In this two-hour, attorney-led training, you will learn how to:

  • Review and revise your handbook for rules the NLRB thinks violate the NLRA.
  • Counter a pro-union push without committing an unfair labor practice.
  • Understand what you can and cannot do to manage your workforce and set rules.

The NLRA legal mandates apply to all companies–learn how to comply.

The National Labor Relations Act applies to virtually all private-sector employers, whether they’re union employers or not. Enforced by the NLRB, it gives non-management workers powerful rights and dictates everything from what rules you can include in your handbook to how you can treat employees who walk off the job. And when it comes to forming unions, it’s never been easier, thanks to new NLRB election rules.

What’s more, until recently, union membership was on the decline. Not anymore. Making matters worse, major unions aren’t just targeting big employers. They’re going after every business with more than one employee, from ma-and-pa pizza shops to small manufacturing operations and beyond—and they’re succeeding. Plus, they can point to eye-popping wage gains for auto workers, delivery service drivers, and warehouse employees to sell the advantage of unionizing.

Don’t let pro-union momentum catch you off-guard. An expert legal analyst, along with a union expert and trainer in employee relations, will walk you through the NLRA’s legal mandates, including why you must pay close attention to your handbook and why one violation could mean huge penalties. You’ll learn about illegal unfair labor practices, what’s allowed, what’s off-limits, and how to respond to threats to unionize—all in one concise session.

Webinar Agenda

  • Learn all about the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and which employers must follow it. Surprise—you don’t have to be a union workplace to have to follow NLRB rules.
  • The NLRB’s handbook rules frequently trip up employers who don’t realize that there are strict regulations on what you can and cannot include when it comes to employee behavior. Learn which rules you should dump immediately and which ones you can tweak.
  • What is protected concerted activity, activity that you cannot ban? For example, employers cannot bar employees discussing among themselves how much they are paid, what their benefits are or complaints about working conditions.
  • Learn what to do when employees start talking about forming a union—and why mandatory captive-audience meetings aren’t the way to go.
  • Know what you can and cannot do about employee social media posts that take aim at your company, management, and supervisors.
  • See examples of unfair labor practices and understand how far you can go in directing your workforce without committing one.
