Stephanie Gournis Spoke with Corporate Counsel About the NLRB’s Guidance Regarding Employment Layoffs Due to COVID-19

Stephanie Gournis was interviewed by Corporate Counsel  for a story about how the coronavirus pandemic has raised questions for employers regarding shutdowns and layoffs. The story discussed a memo issued by the general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), which provided some insight on the issue, but no clear direction.

The March 27 NLRB memo describes four cases involving the duty to bargain during public emergencies and five cases concerning the duty to bargain during emergencies particular to an individual employer.
