Does your handbook state that the at-will employment relationship can be changed only by a written agreement signed by the CEO? Do you have a social media policy prohibiting the use of the Company's trademark or logo? Do you have a complaint procedure that prohibits employees from discussing the investigation with any co-workers pending its completion? If so, you need to attend this breakfast briefing to learn why the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) may find these policies to be unlawful. Employers have historically associated the NLRB with enforcement efforts relating to union organizing and traditional labor law issues; however, the NLRB has recently expanded its enforcement efforts against non-union employers on a variety of employment related issues. During the past year, the NLRB has issued a series of decisions and rulings aimed at strengthening the Section 7 rights of private-sector employees in non-union (as well as unionized) workplaces. These decisions and rulings have addressed many policies commonly used by employers and previously considered lawful (such as at-will policies and policies governing the use of company trademarks and logos). This Employment Law Breakfast Briefing, we will review these developments, explain how they may impact all employers with respect to potential unfair labor practices under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), and suggest possible approaches that employers can take to minimize risk in these areas.
