Workplace Law in the New Administration: A Big Win for Private Clubs
Review areas of potential change in the labor and employment law rules affecting clubs.
This webinar focuses on areas of potential change in the labor and employment law rules affecting clubs. Under the Obama administration, government agencies such as the National Labor Relations Board and the U.S. Department of Labor aggressively expanded their authority and the rights of employees while limiting the rights of employers to manage. In the Trump administration, many controversial rules on important day-to-day issues may be expected to change. Discussion will include the rights of clubs to use arbitration agreements, to have binding workplace policies, to manage employee insubordination and criticism, whether to designate someone an independent contractor rather than an employee, and the rules applicable to union organizing at clubs.
