BLOOMBERG LAW WEBINAR: EXPERT INSIGHTS ON LABOR & EMPLOYMENT
Join Bloomberg Law for a complimentary webinar that will bring together thought leaders to discuss the impact of critical labor and employment related topics such as class actions in the context of the Fair Labor Standards Act, NLRB proceedings and the recent case law on the board’s recess appointments, and how disputes under the Railway Labor Act are handled, compared to unfair-labor-practice disputes before the NLRB, with a view towards gaining clarity about what lies ahead in 2013 and beyond.
Key topics covered during this event include:

II. NLRB: Proceedings Before the Board
- What are the most significant recent cases issued by the NLRB?
- What does the Noel Canning decision by the D.C. Circuit mean for the NLRB? And for parties to current proceedings?

- Do employees’ rights under the NLRA extend to their social media accounts?
III. The Railway Labor Act: A Separate Framework
