  • Can your client ignore NLRB rules if its workforce is non-union? Not entirely. Many clients (and lawyers) are shocked to learn that some NLRB rules apply to non-union workforces even to office workers. One of these is the rule allowing an employee to be assisted by a co-worker at a disciplinary investigation. If your client ignores this rule, it may find itself faced with an NLRB order to reinstate a discharged employee with back pay.
