Human Resource Administration - The Impact of the NLRB and Unionization on Progressive Employment Policies of Nonunion Nonprofits

On-Demand Webinar
March 11 - May 1, 2013

Fee:  $20.00

On-Demand Webinar available March 11-May 1, 2013 (Approximately 90 minutes in length)

Registration closes March 1, 2013

This workshop will discuss how nonprofit employers that are not unionized can proactively respond to recent proposed and implemented changes in the law, resulting from actions of the National Labor Relation Board (NLRB), in order to more efficiently and effectively manage their businesses without undue interference from outside influences, such as unions. Now that President Obama has been reelected, the NLRB is expected to move even further with its pro-union policies and decisions.

On December 14, 2012, the National Labor Relation Board (NLRB) held that a nonunion nonprofit violated the National Labor Relation Act (NLRA) when it terminated five employees for comments they posted on Faceook from their personal computers in response to a coworker's criticisms of their job performance.

If you are surprised by the NLRB's decision or the fact that the NLRB has jurisdiction over nonunion employers, then you should register for our new on-demand webinar.

Featured Topics

  • Why an employer that has no unionized employees is required to comply with the National Labor Relations Act, what exactly that means to the employer, and how the employer can be subject to legal proceedings before the NLRB for unfair labor practices charges

  • What to do and not to do if a union knocks on your door
