The NLRB and the Social Media: What You Need to Know Webinar
Time: 08:00 AM PDT | 11:00 AM EDT
Duration: 60 Minutes
Instructor: Melissa Fleischer
This webinar will equip every organization to ensure compliance with social media policies and how to deal with employees who post on social media in violation of the company policy.
Recently the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) decided that disciplining employees for social media posts that constitute "concerted activity" violates the National Labor Relations Act. This is true even in non-unionized workplaces. The NLRB has also determined many clauses that in employer´s social media policies violate the National Labor Relations Act.
This webinar will also provide tips on best practices in drafting (or redrafting) your social media policy to avoid NLRB allegations that your policy violates the National Labor Relations Act.
