These and other questions about social media in the employment context form the basis of a new report [PDF] issued by the office of general counsel at the National Labor Relations Board.
Cases related to social media continue to confront the board, writes acting GC Lafe Solomon on why his office came out with the guidance, and “these issues and their treatment by the NLRB continue to be a ‘hot topic’ among practitioners, human resource professionals, the media, and the public.”
