Supreme Court Terminates Obama's Recess Appointments

in Labor, Publications

On June 26, 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that President Obama’s three recess appointments made to the National Labor Relations Board in January 2012 were unconstitutional. The decision is very significant, and will have immediate results, as all decisions made by the Board during the term of the recess appointment board members are effectively invalidated by the decision. This is very good news for employers, as the decisions were generally burdensome to employers. The Court’s decision will force the NLRB to revisit, or attempt to revisit, the many rulings involving these invalidly appointed board members. . . 2014 – Supreme Court Terminates Obama’s Recess Appointments
