NLRB sees increase in social media-related cases

100 charges have been filed since 2010, according to Acting GC Lafe Solomon

Acting National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) General Counsel Lafe Solomon is noticing a trend.

According to Solomon, there has been an increase in NLRB cases involving social media since 2010. That was the same year the board issued a catalytic complaint against the ambulance service American Medical Response of Connecticut over its firing of an employee who criticized the company’s management on her Facebook page. The case settled the next year with the company agreeing not to discipline workers for discussing their working conditions on social media.
