Non-Union Companies Like Yours Avoiding the Wrath of the NLRB 

Rod Tanner

Tanner and Associates, P.C.


In recent years there have been many significant developments under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), and it can be challenging for employers to closely monitor every new development.  Each case decided by the National Labor Relations Board or a federal court can have a major impact on an employer’s HR policies and practices. 


 Mr. Tanner’s presentation will highlight some important recent developments under the NLRA that impact non-union employers, including the NLRB’s expansive view on protected concerted activities in the age of social media.  For example, on August 22, 2014, the NLRB ruled in Triple Play Sports Bar & Grill that an employee’s “Liking” of another employee’s work-related Facebook post constituted protected concerted activity, and that the employer violated the Act by discharging those employees because of their participation in this online exchange.  Mr. Tanner will also address recent decisions affecting confidentiality and internal investigation policies in the workplace. 



Rod Tanner is the founding shareholder of Tanner and Associates, PC, a Fort Worth, Texas firm. Mr. Tanner received a Bachelor of Arts with Honors from the University of Texas at Austin in 1973 and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from The University of Texas School of Law in 1976.  He is admitted to practice in the State of Texas, United States Supreme Court, Fifth and Tenth U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeals, and U.S. District Court for the Northern, Western, Eastern and Southern Districts of Texas.

Mr. Tanner’s clients include various international, national and local labor organizations, professionals, employees and public figures.  His notable cases include Aiello v. United Air Lines, 818 F.2d 1196 (5th Cir. 1987 (holding that employee handbook may be enforced as contract modifying employment at-will doctrine under Texas law notwithstanding disclaimer), and Int’l Ass’n of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, Local Lodge 2121 v. Goodrich Corp. (5th Circuit), cert. denied, 126 S. Ct. 647 (2005) (a precedent-setting case in which the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals held that a labor organization had standing to represent retired employees in arbitration proceedings to enforce a retiree medical benefits provision in a collective bargaining agreement).


Mr. Tanner is a Fellow of The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers, a former Chair of the State Bar of Texas Labor and Employment Law Section, and a former Chair of the Tarrant County (TX) Bar Association Labor and Employment Law Section.  He is a Founding Member of the
