Employment, Labor Law Webinar Scheduled for Mid-May
The OES Committee will conduct a Webinar to update the ready mixed concrete industry about recent critical federal employment and labor law changes on Wednesday, May 18. Conducted by labor attorney Jeff Thompson, a partner with Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP, this Webinar will focus on four topics:
- An overview of the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) new rule requiring employers and legal consultants to report any management arrangement to persuade employees directly, or indirectly, regarding the right to organize or collectively bargain.
- Additionally, Mr. Thompson will provide an update on union organizing following last year’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) finalized rule geared toward speeding up the time frame of union organizing elections.
- Mr. Thompson will also cover NLRB‘s 2015 decision about joint-employment, where companies can now be held responsible for labor violations committed by their contractors.
- Finally, Mr. Thompson will discuss proposed DOL changes to overtime regulations.
