NLRB defines "supervisor"

Guidelines for determining whether an individual is a “supervisor” under the National Labor Relations Act were set forth September 29th. by the NLRB in what’s being described as a major decision from that body. (Oakwood Healthcare, Inc., 348 NLRB 37 )

An Oct. 3rd. press release stated, “in NRLB v. Kentucky River Community Care, the Supreme Court criticized the Board’s extant interpretation of Section 2(ll) [of the National Labor Relations Act] of the term ‘independent judgment.’ As a result, the Board endeavored today’s Oakwood Healthcare decision to re-examine & clarify its interpretations of that term as well as the terms ‘assign’ and ‘responsible to direct,’ as those terms are set forth in said Section 2(11).”
