Product Description

Forewarned is forewarned when it comes to this tricky law.

If you hear the term "national labor law" and breathe a sigh of relief that it doesn't apply to a non-unionized healthcare organization such as yours -- hold that breath. The truth is that the law concerning unionization and collective bargaining applies to virtually all healthcare organizations. And a nurse manager's actions can result in her employer being charged with unfair labor practices.

Don't tune out the legal responsibilities of this important law; tune into an audioconference with expert speaker and attorney John Gilliland. He'll lend his 35 years of experience in labor law to highlight what nurse managers and human resource personnel need to know -- whether they are in a union or non-union environment. Learn the straight and narrow path in navigating a law with more than a few twists and turns, including the answers to 3 pivotal questions:

  • Why is it important to identify supervisors for purposes of the national labor law -- and what role do nurse managers play in that process?
  • Can I fire an employee who tries to organize employees?
  • What rights do employees have under the national labor law even if there is no union?

Here's an additional sampling of what you'll learn:

  • What makes an employee a supervisor under the labor law -- and why that distinction is critically important.
  • The real reason employees usually organize (you'll probably never guess).
  • The major mistake nurse managers make in designating an employee's status.
  • Personnel policies to help you stay union-free.
  • Why you should identify supervisors, managers and confidential employees before a union drive begins.
  • How to avoid a "card check," which can result in a union without employees having an election.
