As Mr. Krueger discusses, Peter Robb, the new General Counsel ("GC") of the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”), has issued a memo outlining which cases must be submitted by regional offices to the Division of Advice for guidance. The memo indicates areas in which the new GC will likely ask the NLRB to overturn Obama-era decisions. Robb specifically mentions the joint-employer definition that was expanded in Browning-Ferris and the Purple Communications ruling that employees have a right to use their employers’ email systems for union activity, among other controversial issues.
