NLRB Clarifies Make-Whole Remedies

On December 16, 2022, the National Labor Relations Board issued a decision in Thryv, Inc., expressly ensuring that workers who are victims of labor law violations are compensated for all “direct or foreseeable pecuniary harm” suffered as the result of those unfair labor practices. These financial costs may include, but are not limited to, out-of-pocket medical expenses, or credit card debt. This would apply in every case in which the Board’s standard remedy would include make-whole relief for employees, and will be applied retroactively to all cases currently pending. For more information, see the NLRB press release.
