Unions and Right-To-Work Employment Post-Janus Decision: Implications for Public and Private Employers
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will discuss the eagerly-awaited Supreme Court decision in Janus v. AFSCME, which held that the First Amendment prohibits forcing public-sector employees to pay union “fair share” fees absent the employees' consent. Our panel will discuss how this decision overturns 41-year-old precedent and the impact it is likely have on organized labor and right-to-work employment.
- Overview of the facts and procedure leading up to the Janus decision
- Discussion of how the Janus ruling will impact both unions and employers
- Explanation of how Janus impacts private employers
- Best practices for employers in dealing with unions and unionization and negotiating union-provided benefits with employees
The panel will review these and other relevant topics:
- What was the Supreme Court’s ruling in Janus v. AFSCME?
- How does the Janus ruling interact with the Supreme Court’s earlier Epic Systems decision?
- How will the Janus ruling affect public and private employers?
- What are the best practices for employers in changing or renegotiating employee policies in light of the Janus and Epic Systems rulings?
