NLRB Issues Third Social Media Memo

The National Labor Relations Board’s Acting General Counsel has released another summary of recent social media cases.

The latest summary includes seven cases, six of which resulted in the NLRB finding at least part of the employers’ policies unlawful. It did, however, clear the seventh in its entirety. It also helpfully included the entire seventh social media policy, allowing employers some insight into what a permissible policy looks like.

Notably, the sample provided is far less strict than typical policies. It does not prohibit the discussion of wages, or posting of any employer-related information. It does, however, prohibit employees from disparaging one another, releasing trade secrets or confidential information, and holding themselves out as company representatives.
