Harriet E. Cooperman, a partner in Saul Ewing’s Labor and Employment Practice, is quoted extensively in this article about the continuing pattern in recent years of National Labor Relations Board rulings, which attorneys who represent management are calling biased against employers.  The article also discusses a memo on employee-handbook policies by NLRB General Counsel Richard Griffin that some management attorneys have described “as "excessive" in its restrictions on what companies can and can't say.”

"The board's approach, and the general counsel's, has really grown -- the scope of what they say an employer cannot do has just expanded significantly over the last seven years," Harriet said in the article. She added that Griffin’s memo, in particular ‘"made a lot of management lawyers shake their heads."

Harriet has been named to Human Resource Executive’s 2015 Most Powerful Employment Attorneys Top 100 list.
