WEBINAR - All Handbooks on Deck

Just when you think you’ve gotten the hang of things, everything changes—so goes life, and so goes labor law. A recent memo from the General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) signals that no policy is safe—anything could be thrown overboard at any time, and many things will be! The NLRB has set its sights on employee handbooks, and much, much more. Even vaccine policies are not immune, as it is conceivable that employees could be protected for protesting both a mandatory vaccine policy and the LACK of a mandatory vaccine policy. Employers should be very concerned about these potential developments.  

Watch McBrayer Member Claire Vujanovic give an update on what’s likely to change and to learn how employers can batten down the hatches before the storm hits.

Key Takeaways for Employers

  • Know the trends. In the past few years, NLRB guidance tended to favor employers over employees. Now, employees will benefit most from the changes.
  • Update your handbook. Once cases overturning handbook policies come rolling in, make sure to update your own policies to avoid tricky legal situations.
  • Read up on remedies. New guidance pushes employers to seek "all available remedies" in cases of unfair labor practices. Make sure you know what you may be required to pay or provide.
  • Take stock of your practices. Union and non-union employers alike will be affected by these changes. Review your practices and policies to make sure you know where you stand.
  • Stay informed. Continue to seek information and updates from the NLRB, as guidance changes frequently. Visit McBrayer's employment blog to stay up to date on issues for employers.
