NLRB 'Purple' Ruling May Leave Employers Feeling Blue


Steve Bernstein was quoted in Corporate Counsel on December 15, 2014. The article “NLRB 'Purple' Ruling May Leave Employers Feeling Blue” examined the NLRB’s recent decision in the Purple Communications case, which upends prior NLRB thinking on workers use of employer email, and may open the door for numerous legal complications.

Steve Bernstein was quoted on how this decision will affect in-house counsel moving forward.
