The NLRB has recently implemented new NLRB election rules, which will dramatically impact an employers ability to educate their employees on the perils of unions. Some elections can be held in as few as 14 days after a union petition is filed. Before the new rules, the average was 38 days. Although you may not think your company will be a target of union organizing, if you are and are not ready to respond immediately, your company may lose the election. Thus, it is important that owners, managers and HR staff learn about how to be ready to respond.

Course Objective

Any union organizing is a great threat to employers. Without the ability to quickly respond in a legal manner, an employer may lose the union election and be facing the union across the table for negotiations. This webinar is designed to help you prepare for any union organizing and explain the drastic changes that the NLRB instituted under the new election rules.
