The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) took another pro-employee step this week – this time with backpay calculation. The Board voted 3-1 to revise its backpay calculation formula for unlawfully terminated employees to include: (1) interim employment and (2) search-for-work expenses. In previous decisions, the Board deemed these types of expenses as setoffs that were then subtracted from gross backpay.
