CHICAGO – Clark Hill Attorney Richard H. Chapman authored an article featured in Illinois Banker Magazine titled, “Do You Know the New 2015 NLRA Handbook Violations? ” published in the May/June 2015 issue. The article examines the National Labor Relations Board’s General Counsel’s recently-released memorandum targeting employment handbook provisions that violate Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act.  While Section 7 of the Act typically focuses on union-related matters, the article focuses on its application to employee handbooks and remedial actions for employers.
