Private Employers took advantage of the Employee Handbook Civility Rules put in place by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) for policies that make the Employer's life easier and more in control of employees prior to 2022. These Rules focused on Employer Friendly policies like:
These are outlawed now!
Now, these policies are determined to be unlawful according to the new Administration and will be expected to be changed in 2022.
The NLRB enforces the National Labor Relations Act, which gives both unionized and non-union employees certain rights in the workplace. The extent of these protections tends to shift depending on the makeup of the Board in Washington. With a recent shift to a new administration, we expect the Board to apply the NLRA more broadly, meaning greater restrictions on employer policies and practices.
If your organization is in the private sector (i.e., not a governmental entity), then you are likely subject to the NLRB's jurisdiction. There are more than 50 categories of cases where the current NLRB leadership may try to reverse course on existing precedents that it deems to be too employer-friendly.
Find out how the changes at the NLRB may affect your company and why you might want to start making changes in your Employee Handbook now.
The NLRA protects "concerted activities" that employees engage in to improve working conditions. Historically, and particularly during the previous administration, the board construed the protection as applying to conduct directly related to a specific worksite, such as protesting an employer's overtime policy.
Private-sector union membership has steadily declined for decades. But the access issue is getting renewed attention amid the COVID-19 pandemic and high-profile union elections held by employees of large companies like Amazon.com Inc and Starbucks Corp.
What is Concerted Activity and Why Should Employers Care
Protected Concerted Activity is a legal term used in labor policy to define employee protection against employer retaliation in the United States.
It is a legal principle under the subject of the freedom of association.
The term defines the activities workers may partake in without fear of employer retaliation.
