The NLRA at 80: Is the Statute Adapting to the New Workplace?

Mark Pearce Kent Hirozawa Lauren McFerran, Philip Miscimarra Richard Griffin

Join NLRB Board Members Mark Pearce (Chairman), Kent Hirozawa, Lauren McFerran, Philip Miscimarra, and General Counsel Richard Griffin as we examine the NLRA in its 80th year. In 1935, when the Act was passed, no one could have anticipated the changes to the workplace that dominate our lives today: the internet, social media, globalization, the use of independent contractors, and the service economy. Are the Act and the Board up to the challenge of these new workplace realities and the changing economy? Topics will include the General Counsel’s agenda, the Board’s most recent decisions, and the new election procedures.
