The National Labor Relations Act has been enjoying a resurgence in attention and application in recent years.  From last year’s thirty page memorandum from the National Labor Relations Board’s Office of the General Counsel regarding “Employer Rules” reminding all employers – unionized or not – that handbooks may not contain any language that may have a chilling effect on employees’ rights under Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act, to President Obama’s comment that Tom Brady’s “Deflategate” case was an example of why unions are still important, the expansive reach of the NLRA has been at the forefront of employment law. 

Philadelphia has long been at the forefront of legislation limiting the use of criminal background checks in the hiring process, but, recently, Philadelphia expanded its existing legislation. In 2012, Philadelphia enacted the commonly-referred-to "Ban the Box" legislation, prohibiting employers from inquiring about a job applicant's criminal history before or during the applicant's first interview.
