Building on last year's Supreme Court decision in Epic Systems.

It's all pretty good news for employers.

Are you in the know?

What are you grateful for this year? Here is my list.

Management-side labor attorney William Emanuel was confirmed by the Senate today as a Member of the National Labor Relations Board. Mr. Emanuel’s confirmation gives the Republicans a 3-2 majority on the Board.

However, Republican Chairman Philip Miscimarra has announced that he will not seek a second term when his current term expires in December, which means the GOP lead will soon return to a tie until the President has a chance to appoint a successor.

With President Trump in office for nine months now, it is hard to believe that none of his people are yet on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The four currentCommissioners, including the Acting Chair, Republican Victoria Lipnic, and former Chair Jenny Yang, were all appointed by President Obama.

But that may change soon. The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee held hearings this week on the nominations of Janet Dhillon for EEOC Chair and Daniel Gade for EEOC Commissioner.

(The Senate confirmation vote for William Emanuel, whose nomination as a Member of the National Labor Relations Board has been pending for quite some time, is expected to take place imminently.)

I posted here about Mr. Robb not too long ago.

According to the Law360 article, the Senate vote on President Trump’s remaining NLRB nominee, William Emanuel, could be imminent, but now the President will have to find one more nominee — to succeed Republican Chairman Philip Miscimarra, who will be stepping down when his term expires in December.

*sob!*

Bloomberg BNA reported last night that Philip Miscimarra, Chairman of the National Labor Relations Board and a voice of reason, will be leaving when his term expires on December 16 of this year.

Chairman Miscimarra said that he had been asked to stay for another term but decided not to because he had three kids going to college. Reading between the lines (not very difficult in this ...

The U.S. Senate yesterday confirmed Marvin Kaplan's appointment to the National Labor Relations Board, which means that there is now an equal number of Republicans and Democrats on the Board.

William Emanuel, a management-side attorney from Littler Mendelsohn, is the last Trump nominee to the Board. His confirmation vote will not take place until after the Senate's August ...

Marvin Kaplan and William Emanuel, President Trump's nominees to fill the two vacant seats on the National Labor Relations Board, cleared another hurdle Wednesday by making it out of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. The HELP Committee vote was split along party lines. No date has been set for the full Senate vote, but both Mr. Kaplan and Mr. Emanuel are ...
