The U.S. Department of Labor has launched the latest in its “elaws” series of web-based employment law guides, this one focused on how to conduct union elections.

The new web site (www.dol.gov/elaws/unionelections.htm) walks union members and officials through the steps necessary to comply with the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA).

Like the DOL’s other 29 elaws sites, this one acts as a “virtual bureaucrat,” guiding users through compliance issues by asking questions.

The site steers users through a series of questions to:

  • Determine whether the LMRDA covers the union officer election
  • Help union members and election officials understand their roles and responsibilities in conducting union officer elections
  • Summarize the requirements and procedures for planning and conducting union officer elections
  • Help candidates and union members understand their rights through the election process
  • Outline the timetable and requirements for protesting an election.

Advice: If you’re an employer with a unionized workforce, you owe it to yourself to check out the new site.
