NLRB Regulations, Growing Push for Unions: What Can Employers Do?

Recent Biden administration rules at the labor board and Federal Trade Commission favor employee rights over employer interests. An On-Demand IndustryWeek Member Webinar

Originally broadcast on April 13, 2023. Now available On Demand.


President Joe Biden’s National Labor Relations Board is accelerating its support of employees – and not just in unionized workforces.  In this free webinar, labor expert Mekesha Montgomery discusses the political back-and-forth between administrations at the NLRB, its current structure and recent developments including: 

  • Severance agreement limitations on confidentiality and non-disparagement provisions 
  • Narrowing of the definition of independent contractor  
  • The return of micro unions 
  • Greater liability for unfair labor practice charges 

Learn about these issues and what to expect from federal labor regulators over the next few years in this special webinar for IndustryWeek’s Members Only participants.
