Courts Foil NLRB Again


For the second time in less than 30 days, a federal court has struck down rules imposed by the NLRB. First, it was the obligation to post employee rights under the NLRA. Now, it is the so-called “ambush” election rule. Specifically, Judge Boasberg (an Obama appointee) noted in his opinion that the NLRB did not have a quorum for its final vote on the changes in the Board’s representation case rules. Therefore, the Court held that the changes are invalid and unenforceable.

Most importantly, the Board has decided to suspend its implementation of these rules while it analyzes the court’s decision.

At this point, all we can say is stay tuned for further developments.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
