U.S. Chamber of Commerce

TO: All Members of the U.S. Chamber's Labor Relations Committee and others concerned with the Labor Department's proposed persuader rule

The Labor Department intends to publish revisions to its "persuader" regulations tomorrow. The advanced copy is available here: (see alert below for link).

While we are only in the initial stages of reviewing it, it is a huge reinterpretation of the law and it will force disclosure of many routine communications between companies and their lawyers. It will also require disclosure of certain fees paid to supervisors or employees "for the purpose of causing them to persuade other employees to exercise or not to exercise, or as to the manner of exercising, the right to organize and bargain collectively."

Please see full alert below for more information.
