The Trump Labor Board Goes Back to the Future: A Discussion of December's Seismic Shift and What to Expect in 2018


The last weeks of 2017 brought significant changes to the National Labor Relations Board and federal labor law. Polsinelli’s Traditional Labor Practice Group will cover all of these changes, including the short-lived Republican majority, the new Board members and General Counsel, a recap of the major decisions reversing several of President Obama’s pro-employee initiatives over the last eight years, and discuss what is in store for employers in 2018. 

 Agenda:

  • Overview of NLRB personnel changes, from the Board in Washington to the General Counsel to the Regional Level
  • The recently issued General Counsel Memorandum that contemplated possible deviations to the “quickie” election rules and interpretation of employee handbooks
  • Summaries of decisions changing the standards for micro-bargaining units, joint employers, settlement agreements, and the status quo
  • What to look for in 2018 and beyond 
Speakers:
  • Robert E. Entin, Shareholder
  • Michele Haydel Gehrke, Principal | Practice Chair
  • W. Terrence Kilroy, Shareholder
  • Mark D. Nelson, Shareholder | Practice Vice-Chair
