On June 27, the United States Supreme Court issued its much anticipated decision in Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, Council 31.  The ruling, which found that public sector union “agency shop” fees violate the First Amendment, may have a significant impact on union membership and the operations of school districts and other government entities.

Since then, there have been many questions about the decision’s meaning, impact and interaction with New Jersey law, specifically the recently enacted “Workplace Democracy Enhancement Act.” NJSBA’s Legal and Labor Relations Department has posted an online “Frequently Asked Questions” document to address many of these questions.  The FAQ is located here.
