1. A Trending News interview from Employment Law This Week®, featuring attorney Steve Swirsky, Member of the Firm:

    The Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, if enacted, would be the most significant change to the National Labor Relations Act since the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) was created in 1935.

    The PRO Act is a top priority of the union movement in the United States and is supported by President Biden, who claims to be the most pro-union president in U.S. history.

  2. It’s #WorkforceWednesday! This week, we focus on President Biden’s recent push to limit non-compete agreements and finalize key labor and employment appointments.

    Biden Executive Order Seeks to Boost Competition

    President Biden has issued an expansive executive order, which aims to boost competition across the U.S. economy, lower prices for consumers, and increase pay for workers. The order encourages federal action to ban or limit non-compete agreements, reigniting a policy debate which raged at the end of the Obama administration over when and how non-competes can be enforced.

  4. It’s #WorkforceWednesday! This week, we look at the increase in mandatory vaccination policies, a new rule for tipped workers, and a Supreme Court decision against organized labor.

    Employers Implement Mandatory Vaccination Policies

    Mandatory vaccine policies are on the rise. A month after the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission released updated guidance on mandatory vaccination policies, an increasing number of employers have started introducing these mandates. Courts are also weighing in—a Texas District Court recently affirmed a hospital’s mandatory vaccination policy - healthemploymentandlabor.com/2021/06/24/federal-court-affirms-hospitals-mandatory-covid-19-vaccination-policy/.

    DOL Brings Back Tipped Worker 80/20 Rule

    The Department of Labor (DOL) has proposed a new rule that would once again regulate the amount of time a tipped employee can spend on non-tipped work. The Trump DOL previously withdrew the 80/20 rule.

    Supreme Court Rules Against Organized Labor

    In a blow to organized labor, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that a California law allowing union organizers to meet with agricultural workers on an owner’s property is unconstitutional. The court found that the law amounts to a taking of the owner’s property without just compensation.

    Increasing Scrutiny of No-Poach Agreements

    The crackdown on unlawful no-poach agreements has made it to the state level. An Illinois court recently denied a motion to dismiss a state action against a manufacturing company and three staffing agencies that allegedly entered into unlawful no-poach and wage-fixing agreements.

    NLRB Memo on COVID-19 Policy Complaints

    A recent National Labor Relations Board advice memorandum indicates employee questions and complaints regarding COVID-19 safety policies and practices are unlikely to constitute protected concerted activity unless the questions and complaints are intended to improve conditions of employment and occur in a group setting or on behalf of, or in concert with, other employees.
