Imagine if you will, that a company-sponsored website allows employees to post comments. During the course of a union strike, an employee who chooses to cross the picket line posts a comment threatening to kill union members who try to stop him. The company does not disavow the post. Would the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) find that the company is liable?
We don’t know for sure, since that issue has not yet been addressed, but we know the result if the website is a union Facebook page.
