9180948 Time for an Update - Employee Handbook Rules Revisited
September 13, 2018 | 9:00 am - 11:30 am


Keeping an employee handbook up to date as laws change can be a challenge for any employer.  The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has recently issued guidance on interpreting handbook rules in light of The Boeing Company, 365 NLRB No. 154 (Dec. 14, 2017), which provides some clarity around what handbook rules may generally be considered lawful or unlawful under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). 

If you previously updated your work rules to comply with the Obamacare Board’s expansive reading of protected concerted activity, is it time to change it back?  If you never rewrote your rules of conduct and confidentiality policy, should you wait?  

Find out answers to these questions and more.  Our speakers, attorneys John Knorek and Kendra Kawai with Torkildson, Katz, Hetherington, Harris, & Knorek will discuss recent developments from the Board you should know about that may impact your company policies and practices.
