    No union?  You think the National Labor Relations Act doesn’t apply to your organization?  Well, I’m here to tell you otherwise.  Some of the things you should be thinking of include:

    •  An employee’s right to engage in protected concerted activity
    • The implications of social media
    • Beware of the proposed election rules
    • Are you prohibiting employees from discussing wages?
