Janus v. AFSCME Supreme Court Case: Implications for Private Sector Workplaces
Join us to learn about the Supreme Court’s decision in this pending case and its potential impacts for the public sector union environment and beyond.
Date: Thursday, June 28, 2018, 1:00-2:00pm CT
Cost: $29 ASHHRA Members; $79 Nonmembers
Credits: CHHR 1, SHRM 1, HRCI 1


Description: In Janus v AFSCME, the US Supreme Court has been asked to decide this term whether a public sector union can require all government employees, including those who do not belong to the union, to pay a fee – commonly known as a “fair share” or “agency” fee – to cover the union’s costs of contract negotiations. In this case, the court specifically is asked to overturn its 1977 decision from Abood v. Detroit Board of Education that permits a public employee union to collect a “fair share” of the costs from every worker regardless of union membership as a violation of the First Amendment free speech rights of non-union members who must pay their “fair share” fees. Janus is arguably an important decision affecting public sector employees and public sector union membership. A decision in favor of the petitioner in this case also could have important future implications for private sector workers and union membership, particularly in those states that are not currently Right to Work states.
