You may have heard news reports about the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), but aren’t sure how it might impact your company. All employers must be aware of what its passage would mean, how it would impact the rôle of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), and how it would change the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). That’s because unlike the NLRA, no small business exemption exists in the current version of the EFCA.
How would the EFCA change the union certification process? Why have many business groups opposed the EFCA? Why do unions argue that the EFCA is necessary? How does the EFCA impact stalled negotiations? What penalties does the EFCA propose for certain unfair labor practices? What action items should employers consider as they deal with the EFCA, in whatever final form it takes?
