Neuberger Discusses Supreme Court Ruling in Harris v. Quinn

30 June 2014 Forbes News


Partner Mark Neuberger was quoted in a Forbes article published on June 30, 2014, titled "Public-Sector Unions Survive Supreme Court Review, Barely." The article discussed the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Harris v. Quinn that the justifications behind requiring public-sector workers to pay dues, such as “labor peace” and the avoidance of “free riders” capitalizing on the work of union negotiators, had little relevance in the case of home-health aides hired by individual patients with Medicare funding from the state. Neuberger said the decision addresses only a subset of public employees but could have implications for unions more generally.
