NLRB Ratifies Agency Actions Following Supreme Court’s Noel Canning Decision


On July 18, 2014, the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) ratified all administrative, personnel, and procurement actions approved and/or taken by the Board between January 4, 2012 and August 5, 2013.  This ratification follows the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in NLRB v. Noel Canning that invalidated NLRB actions during that time period because President Obama impermissibly appointed Board members in January 2012.

The NLRB’s meeting minutes show that all five Board members unanimously approved the ratification.  For more information on the effects of the NLRB’s decision, feel free to contact Connell Foley’s labor and employment law attorneys.
