Join SHRM of Greater Kansas City for a pop-up webinar on how the recent Stericycle, Inc. decision from the National Labor Relations Board drastically impacts employers’ work rules and policies. Under the new Stericycle standard, which applies to both unionized and non-unionized workforces, when evaluating a facially neutral work rule, the NLRB will assess whether the rule has a reasonable tendency to chill employees from exercising their Section 7 rights. The Board will interpret the rule from the perspective of the employee who is economically dependent on the employer and who contemplates engaging in protected concerted activity. The new standard mandates that the employer’s intent in maintaining a rule is immaterial; if an employee could reasonably interpret the rule to have a coercive meaning, then the work rule presumptively violates the NLRA – even if a contrary, noncoercive interpretation of the rule is also reasonable.
Anne Baggott, Director of Government Affairs for SHRM-KC and Counsel at global law firm Dentons, will give an in-depth analysis of the Stericyle decision and offer practical tips and examples for updating key work rules in employee handbooks and policies.
This event is FREE for SHRM-KC Members, $50 for non-members.
