Have you updated your social media policy to address NLRB's new measures to protect employees' online posts?
NLRB and Social Media Policy
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) recently decided that disciplining employees for social media posts that constitute "protected concerted activity" violates the National Labor Relations Act. This is true even in non-unionized workplaces. The NLRB has also determined many clauses that are standard in most employer's social media policies violate the National Labor Relations Act. How can you protect your organization? Attend this informative HR Webinar to learn what you should and should not include in your social media policy. Which type of prohibitions can land your organization in hot water with the NLRB? This webinar will provide an in-depth review of exactly what the NLRB considers "protected concerted activity" and provide a comprehensive review of the cases before the NLRB, including a crucial review the NLRB's General Counsel memo outlining the NLRB's position on social media policies. This HR Webinar will also provide tips on best practices in drafting (or redrafting) your social media policy to avoid NLRB allegations your policy violates the National Labor Relations Act.
