Tim Epstein Authors “NHL Sidesteps NLRA but Creates Issues” for Chicago Daily Law Bulletin
November 6, 2012

Tim Epstein, Chair of the firm’s Sports Law Practice Group, questions whether the NHL violated federal labor laws when the league gave NHL executives a 48-hour window to inform players about the most recent collective bargaining agreement. Tim’s article, “NHL Sidesteps NLRA but Creates Issues,” can be found in the Tuesday, November 6, 2012 edition of the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin.

In his article, Tim suggests that this directive may have breached certain protocols established by the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) by directly contacting the players and thus, sidestepping union representatives. As a result, Tim anticipates an unfair labor practices lawsuit may result from the leagues conduct.

This article presents a clear analysis of traditionally accepted conduct outlined in the NLRA related to the sports industry.
