Legislative Update - Employee Rights Act (S 1712)

8/4/14

This act would mandate secret ballot elections for representation and decertification elections and would require secret ballot strike votes. Employee Rights Act, S. 1712, 113th Cong. (2013). It would also preempt efforts by the National Labor Relations Board to propose its "quickie" election rules by barring employees from obtaining employee's private information and ensuring due process in determining bargaining units and voter eligibility. An Employee Rights Act bill identical to the Senate's bill was introduced to the House of Representatives. See Employee Rights Act, H.R. 3485, 113th Cong. (2013).
