The NLRB is in an increasingly aggressive campaign to make itself relevant to ALL private sector employers. Estimates say that over 90 percent of all employee handbooks are not in compliance with current NLRB decisions. Employee rights are expanding exponentially while employer rights are more restricted. This session will provide insight and offer suggestions regarding the most often challenged policies in order to stay out of harm's way with the NLRB.
