- Do you want to prevent employees from discussing their wages with coworkers?
- Do you have social media policies outlining parameters for what employees can post online about the company?
- Would you discipline employees for negative comments they made about your business?
- Do you see employees who discuss issues with working conditions or wages as a “squeaky wheel” or “just trying to rock the boat”?
- Do you think the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”) doesn’t apply to your business because you don’t have union employees?
If you answered “yes” to any of the questions, you need to join our next webinar because yes, the employee conduct described above could be protected under the NLRA. If it is, you cannot take adverse action against the employee for the conduct because yes, the NLRA applies to you too!
