NRMCA Submits Comments Supporting Withdrawal of Labor Persuader Rule
Last week, NRMCA submitted comments to the Department of Labor (DOL) supporting the agency’s efforts to formally vacate the controversial (DOL) "Persuader" Rule. The rule, which was put on hold nationally by a federal judge last November and then reaffirmed by the same court last December, is now formally on the chopping block by the Trump Administration. Since its inception, NRMCA has opposed the rule, which aimed to limit employers’ ability to seek and retain legal counsel for purposes of consulting on employee union organizing drives. The rule also would have required employers and legal counsel to disclose certain financial and other unnecessary private company information, among other erroneous provisions. NRMCA’s comments detailed how the rule represents an unwarranted intrusion into employer’s and employees’ rights and that the revisions are overly-broad in scope.
