Update on Persuader Rule

Department of LaborYou have probably heard discussion of the United States Department of Labor’s Final Rule published March 24, 2016, related to “persuader” activities. This Rule was established under the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act.

Under this Rule, an employer and its attorney are each obligated to report any arrangement in which a direct or indirect object of the service by the attorney is to persuade employees about the manner in which they exercise rights to organize and bargain collectively. Reports are to be made to the DOL. As slated, the Rule will be applicable to agreements and activities from July 1, 2016 forward.

House Republicans have introduced a joint resolution seeking to block the Final Rule and noting disapproval.
