The Art of Union Information Requests

Employers with unionized workforces often face wide-ranging information requests from unions, and are faced with quick decisions about what to provide to avoid unfair labor practice charges.

Employers with unionized workforces often face wide-ranging information requests from unions, and are faced with quick decisions about what to provide to avoid unfair labor practice charges. This information helps those responsible for responding to union information requests understand how to artfully balance the union's need to know with the employer's legitimate need to protect certain information. The content will discuss the categories and limits of relevant information, the available objections, and best practices for responding to such information requests. More specifically, the topic will discuss the specific contours of available objections, with a focus on confidentiality objections and the impact of an employer's other legal obligations, including HIPAA, and you should feel confident responding to union information requests in a way that avoids unfair labor practice charges while protecting the most important information of your company and your employees.
