PERB cases demonstrate that a supervisor’s reasonable course of action with an employee is often derailed by an avoidable unfair labor practice charge resulting from a supervisor’s insufficient understanding of an employee’s right to union representation, an employee’s or a union representative’s “free speech” right in the workplace or employees’ protected activities. To complicate matters, PERB continued to expand employee rights to union representation in three new cases issued at the close of 2018. And, recent Janus-related legislation added constraints to employers’ speech. To help you avoid unfair practice charges that derail your labor relations goals, the presenter will explain PERB’s recent expansion of an employee’s right to union representation, provide guidelines for employer labor relations communications and provide practical guidelines to recognize and avoiding interfering employees’ protected speech and other activities.
