Warner Employment News From the Law Shanty – There’s a New Sheriff in Town: NLRB New General Counsel Jennifer Abruzzo

In today’s “Warner Employment News From the Law Shanty” Steve Palazzolo updates us on the National Labor Relations Board’s new general counsel, Jennifer Abruzzo, and her recent advice memo to the regional directors of the NLRB. This memo is important to non-union employers in addition to union employers, and addresses the types of cases the GC is interested in. In particular, special attention will be given to work rules and handbooks to identify if any of these work rules interfere with an employee’s right to engage in Section 7 activities. It is pretty clear we will see the NLRB shift toward a more employee-friendly, pro-union stance. To learn more about the memo and specifics on work rules and handbooks, click on the link below to view the video.
