New Persuader Rules Issued!

They’re finally here:  the DOL’s new persuader rules have been published in the Federal Register and – at first glance – they look pretty bad.  The DOL watered down their proposed rules just a lil’ bit, and even provided a small set of different rules to allow trade associations to engage in certain activity without triggering any reporting requirements, but overall the rules will be a game-changer for most employers.

discussionI’m currently going through the rules with a fine tooth comb (the rules are either 129 or 446 pages long, depending on whether you read the version with small print or the one with a larger font and double spacing).  In a nutshell, the new persuader rule will no longer accept the “accept or reject” test for the “advice” exception.  As a result, persuaders and employers will be required to file a report for “indirect” persuader activities, which could include the following:

  • Planning, directing, or coordinating supervisors or managers;
  • Providing persuader materials;
  • Conducting seminars; and
  • Developing or implementing personnel policies or actions.

It appears trade associations are exempt from the reporting requirements if they (1) host a counter-organizing seminar but bring in outside speakers or (2) simply provide “off the shelf” materials to an employer for a union campaign.  To get a firmer grasp on how these new rules will affect organizations like the Hawaii Employers Council (“HEC”), however, I need to read through the rules and examine them in more detail.

For anybody who wants to read up on the rules, you can view the following:

In addition, HEC will be providing a seminar on May 11, 2016 that will provide an overview of the new rules, a discussion of how the new rule will impact employers, instructions on how to fill out the LM-10 form for employers, and a review of some of the legal challenges that have arisen against these new rules.  That seminar will be available to HEC members only, and on a first-come-first-served basis.

Finally, once I have a chance to read through all the rules, I’ll prepare and send out an article summarizing the new rule – which will also be available only to HEC members.
