NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 15, 2012) - The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) continues to scrutinize employment practices in both unionized and non-unionized private sector workplaces. To help attorneys better understand the NLRB's prosecutorial agenda, Practical Law Company, a provider of practical legal know-how to attorneys, will present a free webinar, "Employment Practices Facing NLRB Scrutiny," on October 30, 2012, at 1:00PM ET (10:00AM PT).
During the 75-minute webinar, Terence McGuire, attorney editor with PLC's Labor & Employment service, will lead a discussion with Lafe E. Solomon, Acting General Counsel of the NLRB and Steven M. Swirsky, Member of Epstein Becker & Green, P.C. The panelists will discuss their respective views on the latest NLRB initiatives and developments, including scrutiny of common employment practices, such as class action waivers in employment arbitration agreements; at-will employment statements; maintaining confidentiality during internal investigations; and prohibiting employees from posting reputation-damaging comments on social media.
The panelists will also weigh in on legal considerations surrounding such practices, factors that the NLRB considers when deciding to prosecute unfair labor practices and "what's next" on the NLRB's prosecutorial agenda and how employers can prepare. The program will be followed by a question and answer session.
"We are looking forward to presenting this program with the NLRB and Epstein Becker & Green to provide attendees with practical guidance on significant employment issues," said McGuire. "By giving our audience the opportunity to hear directly from the NLRB's top prosecutor, along with expert analysis from a seasoned practitioner, we're able to provide labor and employment attorneys with key insights into issues affecting their clients."
