Is your social media policy illegal?

The National Labor Relations Board has investigated hundreds of charges against employers for the illegal use of social media since 2010.

The Board’s General Counsel prosecuted dozens of complaints, and released information about the lawfulness of companies’ social media policies.

In October 2012, the Board declared certain workplace social media policies illegal.

This goes for ALL private-sector employers, not just union companies. This could mean you!

Your company could be in violation of NLRB rules. It could land your organization in legal hot water!

If you have a social media policy or guidelines in your organization, you need this webinar to learn what you must change NOW to keep yourself out of court.

Join attorney, Seth Borden from McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP, for this tell-all webinar and you’ll learn:

  • How the National Labor Relations Board expanded the types of employee conduct now covered under the National Labor Relations Act
  • What employee social media use is now protected by the Act
  • Why the Board pays close attention to “overly broad” or “restrictive” policies—and how you could be at risk even when employees aren’t disciplined
  • How to convince leadership that your policy needs changes—and quick!
  • How merely having a policy could mean you’re violating the NLRB’s rules—even if you don’t enforce that policy!
  • What language you CAN and CANNOT use in your social media policy—Seth will give you guidelines from the Board and its General Counsel
  • How final orders issued by the Board itself will affect your policy

No doubt the Board will be watching NLRB rules violations on social media policy.
