Five Tips For A Social Media Policy That Won't Rile The NLRB
Tampa Partner Steve Bernstein was quoted in "Five Tips For A Social Media Policy That Won't Rile The NLRB" on Law360 on October 22. The article reported that, although the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) handed down its first social media rulings in September, the question of how the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) applies to employer social media policies is an area of the law that continues to evolve. Steve said employers must keep themselves informed and stay current. "This is a fluid area of the law. When Congress passed the NLRA in 1935, they weren't thinking about blog sites and social media policy, so the NLRB is trying to fit the square peg social media into the round hole of the law. It is still developing, and it is something to keep an eye on."
