This panel presentation will analyze the NLRB’s decision in Thryv, exploring the form of relief that may be sought, are being sought, and are being obtained in the wake of that decision. While the panel will briefly touch on the history of decisions leading to Thryv, and criticism of the decision (including Seventh Amendment concerns), the focus of the discussion will be on the practical effects of the decision on practitioners.
