NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD REPORT CONCLUDES THAT SOME WORKERS’ FACEBOOK POSTS ARE PROTECTED BY FEDERAL LAW

             The Acting General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued a report last week discussing the outcome of investigations into fourteen (14) cases involving social media by the federal agency’s Division of Advise.  In four cases of the fourteen, the NLRB found that workers were protected by Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) because they were discussing terms and conditions of employment.

            In the matters in which the NLRB did not find protected activity, the posts involved individual complaints, rather than concerted action, the NLRB stated.
