Steve Bernstein was quoted in The Washington Free Beacon on August 28, 2015. The article “Bye-Bye Ronald” discussed the National Labor Relations Board's recent decision which holds national corporations accountable for the actions of subcontractors and franchises that operate under the company umbrella.
Steve was quoted on his take of the decision.
Some labor experts said that the decision is a legal minefield for employers. Steve called the new standard “unworkable.”
“We can’t look at this decision in a vacuum. It comes on the heels of the [NLRB’s] quickie election rule during a time when unions can form in the blink of an eye. An employer’s best defense for minimizing such exposure has traditionally rested on maintaining employee morale, improving communications, and ensuring that employees have a voice in the workplace. With this decision, however, it seems that the lines are now more blurred than ever,” he said in an email.
