Peter Sung Ohr, NLRB Region 13 Director, issued on March 26, 2014, a Decision finding scholarship football players at Northwestern University to be employees within the meaning of the NLRA and directed a union election to take place. This has set off a national debate about the status of student athletes and how finding these athletes to be employees with the right to form unions and engage in collective bargaining would affect them, college sports, Title IX and higher education. In addition, there may be implications in this decision for determining the employee status of graduate teaching assistants and interns and residents at hospitals.
