Jeff Hirsch served as faculty for the MCLE webinar “Roadmap to Unionized Workplaces & NLRA/MLRA Rights in Non-Union Workplaces” on March 8, 2023. Providing a management-side perspective on labor law and labor relations issues, Jeff joined fellow panelists to discuss the key aspects of the unionizing process as well as the legal and practical ramifications of what happens once a group of employees has successfully unionized. They also discussed common labor law issues and strategies for navigating them, how labor laws apply to both union and non-union employees, how to bring forward and defend against grievance and claims arising under the parties’ collective bargaining agreements and the labor laws, and how to decipher new case law and initiatives from the National Labor Relations Board.
