Employers received an important warning from the National Labor Relations Board last week. According to Reuters, the Board’s General Counsel issued a memo underscoring the fact that employers must be vigilant when drafting severance agreements, as it is not permissible to include stipulations that require workers to waive their rights in any way. This follows the NLRB’s decision in February, which forbids employers from including any provisions that prevent employees from filing legal claims, or from conversing with the Board, unions, or media outlets. It is crucial that employers take the necessary precautions to ensure that their severance agreements are in line with the NLRB’s current regulations.
