“The Developing Labor Law is the most comprehensive resource in the field—I have been using it ever since it first came out. The Sixth Edition offers the latest analysis, and I would recommend it to anyone working in our field.”

A Cumulative Supplement to this volume is now available. Order Now.
For more than 40 years, practitioners have relied on The Developing Labor Law: The Board, the Courts, and the National Labor Relations Act to keep them current on U.S. labor law. This two-volume treatise, written by distinguished members of the ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law representing management, labor, and neutrals, is the essential research tool for labor and employment law practitioners. It provides an authoritative, balanced perspective on the legal rights and duties of employees, employers, and unions and on procedures and remedies under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).
For the specialist, this classic reference is a quick means of accessing leading cases; for the generalist, it provides an excellent summary of the law and its development. All labor and employment law practitioners will benefit from the history of the development of every major labor law doctrine that this distinctive reference work provides-from contract bar to deferral to arbitration and all that lies in between, including prohibited secondary activity. The Sixth Edition includes updated discussion of a number of important topics, including:
Several important decisions altering Board precedents have been handed down since the Fifth Edition that will affect labor law practitioners. New cases discussed in the Sixth Edition concern such topics as:
The Sixth Edition was published in 2012 and much has happened since. Significantly, the Supreme Court's decision in NLRB v. Noel Canning has voided much of the work of the "recess Board" in 2012 and 2013. Nonetheless this Supplement reports the decisions of the "recess Board" because of their importance to the development of the law and their implications for what the now fully confirmed NLRB will be deciding in the next year. The Supplement also includes a discussion of the Noel Canning decision and its implications.
As clients seek labor law advice, it is essential that counsel be alert, not only to current Board law but also as to what may be expected from the Board in the future. The question is whether the past will be prologue? How will the work of the "recess Board" affect the development of the law? The 2014 Cumulative Supplement will help to answer these questions on issues such as access to employer property right; the line between valid and invalid work rules because they "reasonably tend to chill the exercise of Section 7 activity"; the effect of social media on Section 7 rights; limitations on employee discussions of ongoing employer investigations of employee misconduct; the status of Board policy with respect to deferral to arbitration; whether an employer has a duty to supply the union with witness statements; the duty of an employer to provide notice and an opportunity to bargain concerning employee discipline before the parties have negotiated their first collective bargaining agreement; and developments under Specialty Healthcare rejecting employer challenges to a classification that has been excluded from an otherwise appropriate unit unless there is a showing of "an overwhelming community of interest with those in the petitioned for unit."
