House passes Employer Free Speech Act

On Thursday, the House approved and sent to the Senate H.3658 (Clemmons), the South Carolina Employer Free Speech Act, which will allow business owners to operate free of federal mandates regarding unionization notices. Although South Carolina is currently a right-to-work state, this bill is intended to further combat unionization efforts by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) specifically by providing that an employer is not required to post, physically, electronically, or otherwise, notices informing employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act, court decisions implementing those rights, or information pertaining to the enforcement of those rights.
