The final "Persuader Rule," which increases employers' disclosure requirements about union avoidance consultants, was recently passed by the U.S. Department of Labor. It demands more requirements for the types of activities that consultants and attorneys need to report, and is an attempt by the administration to eradicate any obstructions for unions to organize the American workforce.
The following topics will be covered:
- The new definition of "persuader" activity including examples
- New reporting requirements
- Protecting attorney-client relationship, privileged communications and the attorney-work doctrine
- Status of current lawsuits fighting the final rule
