Name: A Day of Labor Relations
Date: October 11, 2018
Time: 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM PDT
Event Description:
A Day of Labor Relations Training
Presented by Todd A. Lyon and Lisa Vickery, Fisher & Phillips, LLP
Session I (9 a.m. to 12:30)
Just the Facts: Conducting Misconduct Investigations in the Workplace

Discover the proper techniques and tested procedures to investigate misconduct in a unionized workplace. Together, Todd and Lisa will sleuth out the best questions for you to ask during a workplace investigation and how to record the answers in your interview notes. You will also discover the proper method to write an investigatory report which both supports any discipline issued, and assists in shielding the employer from liability. HR and Labor Relations professionals will be able to practice their “CSI” skills in a series of hands-on activities resembling real investigations where the names of any real persons have been changed to protect the innocent.
Session II (1 to 4 p.m.)
Who is the NLRB and What Do They Want with Our Employees?
The National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”) applies to all employees, even those who are not represented by a Union. In this session, you will learn whether the NLRA applies to your workplace and what the current rules employers are allowed to maintain in their Standards of Conduct and Handbooks. This includes a review of important rules like employee/non-employee access to employer property, soliciting employees to join a union, video-recording operations, employee media contact, and workplace rules against bullying. Several hands-on activities will be available for participants to test their knowledge and develop the proper response to improper employee conduct.
