Enactment of the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) has been a top legislative goal of labor unions. On March 10, 2009, EFCA was introduced in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Whether EFCA will be enacted, either as proposed or as revised, is uncertain. If enacted, it would be the most substantial change in federal labor law since the 1930s and would expose non-unionized employers to a higher risk of unionization.
Because of EFCAs importance to employers, Butzel Long attorneys have created the EFCA Update, which provides updates on the legislative developments regarding EFCA. Our attorneys have developed programs for employers to implement in anticipation of this legislation. These programs will also be an effective tool for the workplace in the absence of any new law.
