A proposed “persuader” rule from the Department of Labor is a bad idea, Sen. Lamar Alexander says. The Chattanoogan reports that the rule would require employers who receive guidance from lawyers or labor consultants to file reports to the Labor Department that they have, for example, been advised by a lawyer on what to say to their employees in a speech. Alexander also notes that the Tennessee Bar Association has said the rule will “discourage lawyers from giving legal advice to employers due to confidentiality concerns.”
