Social Media Grows Up — and the Authorities Are Watching
We are pleased to invite you to a luncheon mini-series designed for in-house counsel and human resources executives.
Employers, take notice: there is a "new" regulator watching you on-line, or, more accurately, watching you watching your employees' on-line behavior. The National Labor Relations Board has stepped to the forefront among regulatory agencies focusing on employers' social media policies and related disciplinary actions. Yes, non-union employers too. In a recent report reflecting the NLRB's broad initiative in this area, its General Counsel finds a wide array of employee comments made on social networking sites to be protected (including some pretty offensive remarks about managers) and details how the employers' disciplinary actions and social networking policies violate employees' rights to engage in protected, concerted activity relating to wages, terms and other conditions of employment, as well as the right to support unionization. The Board has also issued a new posting requirement applicable to all covered employers that details employee rights, which has been challenged in court by the National Association of Manufactures. We will address these developments and others relating to employee social networking in our first program of the Fall.
Time: 12:15 – 1:45 p.m.
