Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 17, 2012
TNS Employee Insights, a global leader in survey research, consulting and technology, is hosting a webinar on the legislation and interpretation of the two new rules that are now in effect under the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). The complimentary webinar titled, “New Federal Labor Rules Are Now in Effect: Are You Prepared or Vulnerable,” will take place at 1:00 p.m. CDT and will include tips to help managers respond to and prepare for quicker union elections.
As a market research company, TNS delivers actionable insights to help clients engage their employees, retain top talent and grow. Presenters Michael Schroeder, organizational consultant and CEO of TNS Employee Insights, and Christopher Johlie, labor law attorney at Franczek Radelet P.C., will review the rules that were implemented on April 30, and reveal several concerns many organizations are currently facing with the new rules.
The webinar, which is the third in the series discussing NLRB labor rules, will encourage participants to consider if their organization is prepared or vulnerable under the updated regulations. The rules apply to union and non-union employers, and require for the first time that all covered employers post a notice of employee rights to engage in union organizing activity. Employers should especially take note that the rules dramatically shorten the time period between the filing of a union election petition and an election to 21 days.
“As the third webinar in the series on NLRB laws, the objective here is to shed light on some of the warning signs of union organizing, which can be as basic as an increased number of employee complaints or in the number of policy inquiries regarding pay and benefits,” says Schroeder. “The most important thing managers need to pay attention to is what their employees are telling them, both verbally and non-verbally.”
Johlie and Schroeder will identify several methods for measuring vulnerability based on the TNS Multi-view Assessment and the Union Labor Vulnerability Index. Additionally, they will discuss how employees are using social media and the Internet to promote union organizing behavior.
Illinois CLE will be available to attorneys attending the program. For those individuals outside of Illinois seeking CLE credit, participants can apply in their own state for credit by presenting a certificate of attendance.
