At The Podium

National Labor Relations Board

Date: April 23, 2013

Event: EmployerLINC 2013: ‘Government Gone Wild’

Venue: National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum

Location: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Doing business in an increasingly regulated environment means more rules to follow, costlier penalties and lawsuits to avoid, and increased vigilance on the part of employers in the workplace. So if you feel the government is going wild, you’re not alone. At EmployerLINC 2013, McAfee & Taft’s annual labor, employment and employee benefits seminar, presentations include timely updates on state and federal laws and agency activities as well as practical guidance for maintaining legal compliance.

Presenters Tony Puckett and Natalie Ramsey offer their insights about recent changes in the National Labor Relations Board’s enforcement of labor law statutes on a wide range of employer issues, such as social media, employer investigations, confidentiality of witness statements, and employee handbooks. They also discuss how the NLRB’s decisions apply to both union and non-union workplaces, the latest court rulings on the NLRB’s authority to decide cases in light of the constitutional law challenge to recent recess appointments to the Board, and updated posting requirements for the NLRB’s new notice of rights poster.
