Kentucky Employee Associations: What you need to know

Pursuant to Kentucky law, a labor organization is any employee representation committee, association, or group that exists for the purpose of collective bargaining or dealing with employers concerning grievances, labor disputes, wages, pay, hours, or other terms and conditions of employment (KY Rev. Stat. Sec. 336.180). Employers should therefore be cautious when dealing with employee “committees,” whether they are self-appointed or formed by the employer. It is possible to inadvertently create or recognize a labor organization, which is thereafter entitled to the rights and privileges afforded to unions under state law.
