Sixth Circuit enforces NLRB ruling granting back pay to employee fired for union activity
the NLRB sued the Jackson Hospital Corporation to force the Hospital to pay back-pay to eight employees fired because of their support for a union. Ultlimately, the claims were paid with the exception of Melissa Turner whom the Hospital continued to resist paying. On January 31 of 2012, the unanimous court ruled that the NLRB order should be enforced and granted Turner back pay. It concluded that the Hopital's excuses for failing to re-hire the radiology tech were not supported by competent evidence.
