Rob Boonin Authors Article for Law360

January 16, 2015

Robert A. Boonin, Member in Dykema’s Labor & Employment practice resident in the Firm's Detroit and Ann Arbor offices, authored the article, “NLRB Is Showing More Interest In Nonunion Employers,” which appeared in Law360.

In the article, Boonin points out that the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is applying what were often regarded as virtually dormant legal concepts to the nonunionized workplace. The NLRB is now scrutinizing nonunionized employer policies more frequently and invalidating those that, in its view, could “chill” employees from engaging in concerted activities.

Boonin goes on to highlight that since nonunionized employers are now being found to have engaged in unfair labor practices more than they ever have before, employers should review their policies to determine if they could be construed by the NLRB as inhibiting employees from engaging in legally protected concerted activities.
