Kraemer Comments on the NLRB Recess Appointment Ruling
Michael Kraemer, counsel in the Labor and Employment Group, was recently interviewed by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's June 26 decision that struck down President Obama's 2012 recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board. The decision could potentially invalidate hundreds of rulings made in the last 18 months.
"Those matters were now decided by an unconstitutional board," Kraemer said. "So if you're a lawyer who has one of those cases - assuming you've done what you need to do to protect your procedural status - then all of a sudden you have a case that needs to be revisited, which is a huge administrative nightmare for the board."
