Sixth Circuit rejects nursing home claim that RNs are supervisors

This week the Sixth Circuit reversed a Federal Judge's decision holding that charge nurses were "supervisors" not subject to restrictions on overtime and other provisions of the National Labor Relations Act.   In Frenchtown Acquisition Company v. National Labor Relations Board, the owners of four nursing homes challenged the Board's ruling that the charge nurses could unionize, claiming that since the nurses' duties included limited management responsibilities over other employees, they were "supervisors" under the NLRA.  The Sixth Circuit reviewed the existing law and its application to the seven nurses' employment duties and rejected the employer's appeal.
