A federal appeals court has upheld a controversial labor rule that gives employees the right, even in nonunion workplaces, to bring a co-worker along with them during an investigative meeting that could result in discipline. (YATL, September 2000, p. 1)
Last year, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) decided to extend these so-called Weingarten rights to nonunion workplaces. On Nov. 2, the D.C. U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that this decision was reasonable. (Epilepsy Foundation of Northeast Ohio v. NLRB, No. 00-1332, D.C. Cir., 2001)
The appeals court refused to apply the rule retroactively. But it will be applied in future cases.
