Piling On! DOL Proposes Rule Changes That Will Impact Employers


By now you’re aware of the NLRB’s proposed rule changes aimed at speeding up elections to make it easier for unions to organize. (See our Legal Alert “Unions In Decline? Labor Board To The Rescue!” June 30, 2011).

The Department of Labor has also joined the fight to try and keep unions healthy, with rule changes of its own. These proposals affect a law most employers are unfamiliar with but which could, directly or indirectly, alter how you communicate with your employees about unions. It’s known as the LMRDA.

Please see full alert below for more information.
