Matt Austin Gave NLRB Legal Update at Ohio State Bar Association Annual Convention

Management labor lawyer Matt Austin presented a seminar to other attorneys about the flurry of changes to established legal precedent coming from the National Labor Relations Board at the Ohio State Bar Association’s Annual Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.

The crowd of roughly 75 attorneys were treated to a legal update focused solely on the resurgence of traditional labor law. This presentation included the most up-to-date analysis of whether President Obama’s “recess” appointments to the NLRB were unconstitutionally appointed, ways the NLRB is overturning settled precedent – some of which has been settled for over 50 years, how the Board is invaliding many handbook provisions, and how to create a social media policy that passes the National Labor Relations Board’s scrutiny.
