DOL Moves to Revoke Persuader Rule

The Obama administration’s “persuader rule” requiring law firms to publicly disclose any work they do for employers surrounding union organizing efforts, already subject to a nationwide injunction, is being revoked by the Trump administration’s Department of Labor (DOL).

The DOL on Monday, May 22, filed a proposal to formally rescind the rule, which was blocked by U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings and whose ruling was appealed to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans by the Obama Department of Justice.

Judge Cummings on June 27, 2016, granted the National Federation of Independent Business’s motion for a permanent injunction.
