Read the linked study in the article. Also, this is a further action by the NLRB packed by Obama with illegal appointments under legal challenge. Additionally, this would require a formal disclosure whenever a company seeks legal advice in this area. So much for attorney client privilege. It will also open up the attorneys to direct action by militant unionists and their allies.
gunsequalsfreedom is correct. the proposed rule forces the company and lawyer to disclose amounts paid, timeframe. so much for privacy of private company. if it is a publicly-traded company and you can convince the shareholders to disclose, so be it. otherwise no way this is right. what gives you or anyone the right to know when someone consults a lawyer for any reason?
Correction to my post: Truth29 is correct, not gunsequalsfreedom!
