NLRB Seeks Input On Its Work Rules Standard

Volume: 21 | Issue: 2
January 10, 2022

As we discussed in December, the new democratic-majority of the National Labor Relations Board (Board) is seeking to change the legal standard the Board uses to determine whether an employer’s work rules and handbook policies are lawful under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). Last week, the Board invited employers and others to weigh in on this issue through the case of Stericycle, Inc. The Board specifically identifies a desire to again restrict investigative-confidentiality rules, non-disparagement rules, and rules prohibiting outside employment.

If you are interested in providing input to the Board on these important issues, please contact a KZA attorney.
