An appeals court reach a decision regarding the formation of unions. This ruling may impact employee rights in Wisconsin and across the country. The court struck down a previous federal rule that mandated employers to display posters that informed workers that they had the right to form a union.
The ruling was part of a string of decisions that have favored businesses across the country. The same appellate court questioned numerous decisions by the National Labor Relations Board after finding that recent appointments to the same board were not constitutional. The executive branch's administration is in the process of appealing that decision to the United States Supreme Court.
Individuals who believe that their rights as employees have been violated may consult with a Wisconsin employee attorney. This type of attorney may be able to inform a potential client if he or she has a viable claim.
