It's Settled (Or Is It?) - How the NLRB Is Restricting Private Agreements By April N. Love

Perhaps more importantly, settlement can help employers avoid the risk of an unfavorable outcome at the hands of an unfriendly fact-finder -- unless you intend to resolve an alleged violation of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).
