By Kenneth Lopatka
Just because a workplace is non-union doesn’t mean workers don’t have rights under federal labor law. This book is a solid resource devoted to exploring the National Labor Relations Act’s (NLRA) application in the nonunion workplace and the varying decisions of the NLRB regarding private sector employment issues.
The exploration of critical issues in NLRA Rights in the nonunion arena includes discussion of:
NLRA Rights in the Nonunion Workplace is sure to be a helpful resource both for organizers and attorneys less familiar with labor law and for traditional labor lawyers and labor professionals alike. This is the only book we know of that is completely focused on this topic.

- Issues surrounding union organizers applying for jobs in nonunion companies for the purpose of organizing (salting);
- Potential liability in conducting investigations of employee misconduct, denying an interviewee’s request for coworker assistance, and suspensions pending investigation.
