Cozen O’Connor: What’s Next in Labor Law?

What’s Next in Labor Law?

Monday, April 3, 2017

Joe Tilson, chair of Cozen O'Connor's Labor & Employment department, discusses what's next in labor law in Chicago Lawyer Magazine. “I’m confident that many of the decisions of the Obama NLRB will be overturned,” Joe said. Although the board’s lone Republican Philip Miscimarra was an Obama appointee, Trump appointed him acting chair in January, a position Joe predicts will become permanent. That means a former voice in the wilderness is now running the show. “In most of the decisions, he was a dissenter,” Joe said of Miscimarra. “Now that he will become the chair of the NLRB, I believe that he will have a real leadership role. And he really is a thought leader in the field of labor and employment law and a true legal scholar.”
