Employee Handbooks: Read ‘Em & Weep (No More?)

On June 6th, the General Counsel for the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued an advice Memorandum, “Guidance on Employer Handbook Rules…” This is the fourth time in six years the office has published guidance related to employers’ policies. Topics covered in this latest guidance include and are not limited to:

  • shifting from a “could be” to a “would be” rule for determining if an employer’s policy violates the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA);
  • a new balancing test for protecting employees’ rights under the NLRA with the employer’s business justifications;
  • employers’ workplace rules and policies regarding:
    • Workplace civility
    • Insubordination & disruptive behavior
    • Confidentiality & proprietary information
    • Wages, benefits and working conditions
    • …and more!


Join this interactive program as we review the NLRB’s practical examples of policies that would and would not violate the NLRA and why.
