works with colleges and universities to prepare for their employment obligations, including policy review, key employee relationship review, collective bargaining, and managment training. Paul also lettered in football at Bringham Young University, and brings a unique perspective to the NLRB's Northwestern ruling.
Paul recently shared his insights on the ruling with Anthony Schoettle of the Indianapolis Business Journal. As Paul stated in the article, "The institutions that get unionized are often the ones that deserve it. Unions crop up in places where employees feel they have to act collectively to force their employers to do something."
