US Election 2012: A Post-Election Analysis Of The Labor Relations Implications For Employers

The 2012 election has significant labor relations implications. Based on the results, is new legislation likely? Will there be additional Presidential Executive Orders? What will be the composition of the NLRB for the next four years – and what impact will it have on your organization? What about the Department of Labor? What will happen to the NLRB’s rulemaking initiatives such as those on notice posting and accelerated elections? Will the NLRB’s focus on protected concerted activity mean changes to employers’ policies on social media, class action waivers, confidentiality of investigations and other workplace programs? What about “Obamacare”? What should employers consider as possible post-election priorities?

Jackson Lewis labor attorneys will conduct a one hour webinar (UPDATE 26/11/2012: webinar available here) as they discuss how the election results will likely impact the labor landscape and some recommended steps for employer consideration in light of the election.

The webinar will be available on the Jackson Lewis website on November 20 and distributed to all Jackson Lewis Updates e-subscribers at that time. If you are not a subscriber yet, you can sign up here.
