Competencies: Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral), Organization (Technical) | Intended Audience: Mid-Level
Workplace Application:
: Labor relations begins with employee relations and an understanding of the important and somewhat contradictory provisions of the National Labor Relations Act. This session will discuss the new laws and how they impact on workplace dynamics and the need for wholistic approach to labor relations. 

The NLRA is the Grandaddy of them all when it comes to employment laws impacting on ALL private sector employers and employees.  Recent changes dramatically change the legality of handbooks and policies, the rights of employees on social media and during workplace investigations, the leverage unions have during bargaining and, most significantly, created new and much easier pathways for unions to organize and very strict limits on employers' ability to educate employees during union organizing drives.  The new reality is that employers could violate the law with a few simple words in a handbook and can be unionized in as little as fourteen days if they miss the new NLRB deadline.  Immediate action is necessary to understand these changes, update your labor relations compliance strategies and prepare your workplace.  This interactive session will update on the law and provide critical on how to prepare your management team for the challenges we face in the new pro-labor arena and era of heightened union activism.

  • A detailed understanding of new NLRA legal requirements that impact on all private sector employers.
