Changes on the Horizon for the NLRB

01.16.2017

On Friday, President-Elect Trump will be sworn in and take office.  Among the first things his administration will do is appoint new board members for the National Labor Relations Board, making it a Republican majority for the first time in many years.  Over the next few years, it is likely that they will reverse many of the actions that the Obama Board implemented, including many of its pro-union and pro-employee rulings.  Many of the NLRB decisions from the last eight years will likely be revisited, including its strong stance on social media policies and employer handbooks.  As decisions come down, we will report on this blog so that you can be up-to-date with the changing policies.
