This program, taught by Alejandro A. Ortiz, a senior staff attorney with the ACLU's Racial Justice Program and former field attorney with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), will review protections and limitations for low-wage workers covered by the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). The course will also discuss proposed and potential changes to the NLRA, and how such changes could affect low wage workers in various industries. Finally, the presenter will analyze relevant and recent caselaw about the NLRA that is particularly pertinent to low wage workers.

The program will benefit attorneys who practice before the NLRB as well as those who represent low-wage workers, unions, and employers of those workers.

  1. Review the protections afforded workers under the NLRA and limitations on those protections
  2. Analyze how those protections and limitations affect low low-wage workers employed in specific areas, such as farm vs. fast-food workers
  3. Identify possible coming changes to the NLRA and how those changes would affect low-wage workers
