Ballard Spahr labor and employment partner Denise M. Keyser says the impact of the Washington, D.C., federal appeals court decision to invalidate President Obama’s recess appointment to the National Labor Relations Board goes far beyond labor-management issues.

“This is a huge decision. This has potential to paralyze big sections of the government,” Ms. Keyser said.

If the decision is upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, or other districts issue similar rulings, she said, it will force presidents to compromise much more than they already have in hiring replacement managers for many government offices.
