An experienced labor and employment attorney, Jonathan Nadler of Philadelphia has represented numerous clients in matters brought before the National Labor Relations Board. In doing so, Jon Nadler applies an in-depth knowledge of the rights and obligations of employers and employees under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). The National Labor Relations Board, an independent federal agency, is responsible for enforcing and administering the NLRA, including the law applicable to union representation and decertification elections, and allegations of unfair labor practices by unions or employers. Under the NLRA, employees are permitted to form, join, or assist a union in organizing efforts. Employees are also protected if they choose not to join a union. The National Labor Relations Board also protects employees' rights to engage in concerted protected activity for the purpose of improving or maintaining conditions of employment. For example, this means that a minimum of two employees have the right to approach their employer regarding pay adjustments, to advocate for improved working conditions, or to bring up safety concerns either with one another or with the employer. Employers may not take adverse action against employees for engaging in concerted protected activity, so long as that activity is lawful.
