Annotation: The Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959, as amended (LMRDA), chapter 29, section 504, of the United States Code is discussed as it relates to probationers and parolees.
Abstract: Section 504 of LMRDA, viewed as a "remedial" statute, has become exceedingly important in preventing the influence of criminal elements in the labor movement of the United States. This article discusses the various sections of the LMRDA regarding employment restrictions applicable to probationers and parolees. As evaluated in this article, a general study of the LMRDA found no local union officers or dissidents who could think of any modifications, reflecting that many in the labor movement may be in favor of the congressional intent as evidenced in the LMRDA to contain any criminal influence on the conduct of union affairs by union officials and officers. The 1984 amendments, which included the Comprehensive Crime Control Act and the Labor Racketeering Amendments, greatly expanded the original scope of the LMRDA. Notes, references
