In light of recent cases such as Costco and Knauz, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued a memorandum that will help employers in drafting their company's social media policy. The memorandum and the decisions made by NLRB both suggest that the social media policy should take in consideration employees' free speech right and other regulations under National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). In this regard, companies should consider reviewing their policies in order to avoid pitfalls suggested by the guidance.
The Knowledge Group has assembled a team of experts who will help you understand the most important aspects of this issue. Going beyond the basic mechanics, our panel of experts will present their thoughts and opinions on how to best comply with NLRB’s Social Media Initiative. They will also present their findings on its possible impact on your business and will share their best practices in drafting and implementing your social media policy.
