NLRB releases second social media report

Report underscores two important elements about social media policies

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued a second social media report Jan. 25 that underscored some of the points made in the board’s first report, which it released in August 2011.

The Operations Management Memo looked at 14 cases—seven of which involved questions about employers’ social media policies. According to the release issued by the NLRB’s Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon, five of those policies were found to be unlawfully broad, one was lawful, and one was found to be lawful after it was revised.
