The authors of this article summarize a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Report addressing the unlawful nature of certain handbook policies under the National Labor Relations Act. Given the NLRB’s increased focus on handbook policies and this Report’s conclusions regarding a number of frequently used policies, the authors suggest that employers carefully review their handbooks to avoid NLRB scrutiny.
