Today, the NLRB‘s Acting General Counsel posted a third report regarding social media issues which have been brought to the agency. The cases discussed in this report should provide further guidance to employers struggling with developing strategies for using social media in their business, developing employee policies regulating activity in social media, and enforcing those policies. In six of the seven cases discussed, the General Counsel’s office found some provision of the employer’s social media policy to be lawful. In the other case, the entire policy was found to be lawful.
