Course Description

Time 62 minutes
Difficulty Intermediate

This course, led by attorney Paul Burmeister, will review the latest year of rulings by the National Labor Relations Board as well as significant court rulings that affect labor law and labor relations. Just recently, the NLRB has changed course on years of past precedent by allowing graduate students to form labor unions at private universities. Could that ruling affect the ability of college athletes to organize?

Even non-unionized employers and attorneys representing them can benefit from a review of recent NLRB activity. For example, this course also addresses continuing changes to Board policy and rulings related to social media, joint employment, and other aspects of labor relations that have experience change in the past twelve months. Even the famous - or infamous - inflatable raft has had its day in court this year. This 2016 update provides the opportunity to discuss all of these rulings and their impact on labor law. 


Learning Objectives: 

  1. Identify and discuss the most recent NLRB rulings
  2. Understand the impact of these decisions on labor law and labor relations
  3. Address other issues affected by NLRB activity, including Board policies, social media use, and joint employment
