Will Employers Be Left Holding the Check? "Card Check" Legislation Raises Concerns for Employers

March 2007
Employment Law Notes
If you are an employer that has a “union shop,” you may soon have more company—at least if the Democrats in Congress get their way. On March 1, 2007, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the proposed Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA). The Act is on its way to the Senate where opposition is expected to be more strenuous, and passage is viewed as less likely. So, should you be concerned? If you are a Washington employer and any of your employees are “non-union”—and you want to stay that way—the answer is “yes.”
