Legal Alert: The Employee Free Choice Act - What Employers Should Do Now
Most observers predict that the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) will become a reality during the first sixth months of the new Obama administration. Without a doubt, this would be the most significant reform to the Nation's labor laws since the enactment of the Labor Management Relations Act in 1947. It is well known that over the last 30 years, the percentage of the American workforce represented by labor unions has declined dramatically. The EFCA's clear purpose, the stated goal of those who support its passage, is to reverse that trend.
