DESCRIPTION

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, as well as procedures and remedies under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). 

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. 


The 2015 Cumulative Supplement:

  • addresses significant decisions reversing NLRB precedent;
  • discusses recent NLRB social media cases;
  • analyzes issues such as right of access to employer property, the line between valid and invalid work rules, and limitations on employee discussions of ongoing employer investigations of employee misconduct;
  • reviews the recent Board decision in Babcock & Wilcox with respect to deferral of arbitration;
  • discusses Board policy in Murphy Oil USA with respect to employer mandatory arbitration agreements; and
  • discusses the Board’s December 15, 2014 Final Rule regarding representation hearings.
