Truth in Employment Act of 2009 (H.R. 2808)

Core Provisions: The bill would amend Section 8(a) of the National Labor Relations Act to provide that the Act’s prohibition of unfair labor practices does not require an employer to “employ any person who seeks or has sought employment with the employer in furtherance of other employment or agency status.” As detailed in the bill’s findings and purposes section, this amendment would attempt to discourage the tactic of “salting,” the practice by which professional union organizers and agents seek employment with a non-union employer primarily for the purpose of organizing the employer and/or inflicting economic harm on the employer.

Status: Rep. Steve King (R-IA) introduced the bill on June 10, 2009, and it was referred to the House Committee on Education and Labor that same day.
