Earlier this spring the National Labor Relations Board’s “quickie election” rules took effect. Before employers could digest this change, the Board dramatically enlarged the scope of relationships that constitute “joint employment.” Coming on the heels of recent rulings on social media and other employer policies, these actions are not-so-gentle reminders that this Board is an active one that will not hesitate to depart from decades of precedent in its attempt to bolster unionization and expand its authority over the U.S. workplace. Join Charlie Einsiedler and Michelle Bush as they discuss recent NLRB actions and their impact on employers and their employment-related business relationships.
