D.C. Circuit: Quicken Loans’ Disclosure Rules Violate National Labor Relations Act

(August 3, 2016, 2:25 PM EDT) -- WASHINGTON, D.C. — Quicken Loans Inc.’s rules barring mortgage bankers from disclosing a broad array of personnel information or criticizing the company without written consent violate the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) because “they unreasonably burden the employees’ ability to discuss legitimate employment matters, to protest employer practices, and to organize,” a District of Columbia Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel ruled July 29 (Quicken Loans, Inc. v. National Labor Relations Board, No. 14-1231, D.C. Cir.; 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 13778).
