Worried about ‘quickie election’ rule? Attorneys urge supervisor training

April 29, 2015

Charles H. Kaplan, a Member of Sills Cummis & Gross, was quoted in this article.  As seen in this article, "The much ballyhooed National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) rule shortening the process leading up to unionization elections is now in force, leaving employers scrambling to figure out how best to protect their interests.

One bit of advice: Focus on supervisor training. Supervisors are the employer’s eyes and ears among employees, according to Kevin C. McCormick and Charles H. Kaplan, two attorneys experienced in union avoidance who recently conducted a Business and Legal Resources webinar on how employers should respond to the new rule, which went into effect April 14.

Kaplan, an attorney with Sills Cummis & Gross P.C. in New York City, also urged a proactive strategy because by the time a union files a petition with the NLRB, 'it’ll be too late.'"
