Supreme Court Clarification for NLRB Injunctions

06/13/2024 2:35 PM | Maggie Garry (Administrator)

The Supreme Court issued a ruling today in a case with Starbucks that the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) did not use the correct standard when they sought an injunction after Starbucks fired 7 workers who claimed they were fired in retaliation for union-organizing in Memphis.  The injunction allowed the fired workers to return to their jobs during an NLRB investigation.  The court ruled that the NLRB should have used a stricter four-factor test instead of the relaxed two-factor test when applying for an injunction which could make it more difficult to return employees to work during investigations.
