BRIEFING: Labor Law Update

Two years into the Biden Administration, we are seeing significant shifts in labor law that are impacting colleges and universities on multiple fronts. Undergraduate student employees are forming unions. There is talk about whether student athletes must be classified as employees and whether NLRB jurisdiction might extend to public institutions through the hook of athletic conference participation. The NLRB has reinstated the concept of micro-bargaining units through its decision in American Steel Construction, Inc. and expanded the scope of damages for unfair labor practices in Thryv, Inc.

Join us for a 30-minute NACUA briefing in which NACUA members Nicholas DiGiovanni (Morgan, Brown & Joy) and Vannesa Martinez Cecchini (Yale University) will discuss the latest updates in labor law and their impact on higher education.
