In Martin Luther Memorial Home, Inc., +343 N.L.R.B. 646 (N.L.R.B. 2004), the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) considered whether an employer violated the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) by maintaining work rules prohibiting "abusive and profane language," "harassment," and "verbal, mental and physical abuse." Specifically, the issue before the NLRB was whether the maintenance of such rules reasonably tended to "chill" employees in the exercise of their NLRA rights.
