About a month ago, we received a press release stating that WeWork would be facing NLRB charges for violating employee rights following former employee, Tara Zoumer, lawsuit against them.
A few days ago, we received information that another WeWork ex-employee (Rachel Wynn) has filed an NLRB charge against the coworking big fish for the same reason, violating Section 8(a)(1) of the National Labor Relations Act.
Below you will find a short description of the charge filed by Rachel Wynn, as well as a copy of the files charges, sent by Seth Goldstein to our editors.
Regardless of the outcome that will come of this recent charge, flexible workspace operators can learn from this that it’s important to acknowledge the value of staff, and be aware of how bad management can lead to unwanted bad press, which is never a good sign for future investment or employment.
Rachel Wynn a former WeWork employee today filed NLRB charges against WeWork and Trinet as joint employers. Rachel Wynn is alleging that both WeWork and Trinet violated Section 8(a)(1) of the National Labor Relations Act by maintaining unlawful and overly-broad provisions in the Employer’s Handbooks.
Additionally, that WeWork and Trinet was violating labor law by requiring employees to sign mandatory arbitration agreements that preclude them from engaging in protected concerted activities, including class action.
