Federal Court Issues Nationwide Permanent Injunction Against DOL Persuader Rule

Court States Rule Should Be Held Unlawful

A federal district court has issued a nationwide permanent injunction against the U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL) final "persuader rule."

Background
Existing federal law requires labor organizations, consultants, and employers to file certain reports and disclose expenditures on labor-management activities. Employers who hire labor relations consultants to persuade employees one way or another on organizing and bargaining issues must report these relationships, including how much they spend on these activities.

The DOL's final persuader rule required employers (and their hired consultants) to file reports not only for direct persuader activities (e.g., consultants talking to workers), but also for indirect persuader activities (e.g., consultants scripting what managers and supervisors say to workers).

Court's Permanent Injunction
In issuing the nationwide permanent injunction against the final persuader rule, the federal court stated that the rule should be held unlawful and set aside under federal law. Click here for more information.
