  • Employee Use of Social Media May Constitute Protected Concerted Activity

    January 4, 2012

    The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) supports the right of employees to engage in collective action to address workplace issues. This right is grounded in Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), which provides both union and nonunion employees the right to "engage in concerted activities for the purpose of collective bargaining or other mutual aid or protection." Several recent decisions indicate that the NLRB may be rethinking this initial broad view of what constitutes protected concerted activity in social media postings.
