Legal Alert - Employers’ Initial Obligations Upon the Filing of Election Petitions Under the New NLRB Rules
April 13, 2015
by Gerard Morales and John F. Lomax, Jr.
The new NLRB expedited union election rules, scheduled to go into effect on April 14, 2015, drastically restructure NLRB representation proceedings and impose very significant new obligations on employers. The rule changes promise to reduce the amount of time an employer has to challenge a union organizing effort. The rules are being challenged in litigation, but at present the NLRB’s Regional Offices plan to move forward with the new rule changes.
