    SHRMA Presents:

    Developments in Private Sector Labor Law: Legal Update for Traditional Labor Law

    presented by Nicole Elgin



    Over the past year, the NLRB has issued several cases that have altered the landscape of traditional labor law.  This program will explain the contours of the NLRB’s recent activity, and provide employers with insight on the meaning of these changes and practical labor relations tips. If your employers are represented by a labor union, or your industry if heavily unionized, this program is a must for you! 

    Learning Objectives 

    1. Understand the contours and practical implications of the new standards and laws regarding labor relations.
    2. Identify specific challenges attendees will face in their workplaces because of the new developments.
    3. Develop strategies to address the new challenges in the area of labor relations.


    Nicole Elgin represents employers in traditional labor and employment law matters. Nicole’s labor practice ranges from strategizing employer campaigns during a unionization drive to negotiating collective bargaining agreements and representing employers in hearings before arbitrators, the Oregon Employment Relations Board, and the National Labor Relations Board. Nicole works with unionized employers across a variety of industries and sectors, from chemical manufacturing and wood products to public education service districts.
    Nicole’s employment law practice includes working with employers to adapt workplace policies to the latest legislative changes at the state and national levels. Nicole defends employers facing investigation by Oregon’s Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI), Washington’s Labor & Industries (L&I), and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Nicole also advised the state in drafting its regulations on Oregon’s Equal Pay Act as a member of the Bureau of Labor and Industries’ Rulemaking Committee and has helped numerous employers perform equal pay analyses.
