Jackson Lewis P.C. • August 20, 2015
Vacating a Board order adopting an Administrative Law Judge’s decision holding that an employer violated Sections 8(a)(1) and (5) of the National Labor Relations Act by ceasing to pay longevity pay under a collective bargaining agreement between the employer and the union representing its employees, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has held that Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon could not have lawfully delegated authority to an NLRB Regional Director to issue the underlying unfair labor practice complaint against Southwest Ambulance because Mr. Solomon, at the time, was not lawfully appointed as the Board’s Acting General Counsel. SW General, Inc. v. National Labor Relations Board, No. 14-1107, 2015 U.S. App. LEXIS 13812 (D.C. Cir. Aug. 7, 2015).
