Speaking of the NLRB and the recent rulings by which the (then 5-member) Board officially overturned a number of egregious Obama-era decisions (joint employer, employment manuals, and others), ranking democrat members of the Senate and House Workforce Committees are alleging one member was “compromised”. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) and Representative Bobby Scott (D-VA) sent a list of questions to NLRB Member William Emanuel asking about his prior employment with the management-side law firm of Littler Mendelson. They also sent a host of questions to Emanuel about the NLRB decision to issue a request for information regarding “quickie elections” and the likelihood that the NLRB will soon overturn that Obama-era rule issued in 2014 as well. The two were joined by Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Maggie Hassan (D-NH) as well as Representatives Donald Norcross (D-N.J.) and Kilili Sablan of the Northern Mariana Islands.
