The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) filed a complaint regarding a company which took action against an employee who had posted unfavorable comments about the company on her Facebook page. See my prior post about this case. The NLRB and the employer have now settled that case. As part of the settlement, the company agreed to change its overly broad rules prohibiting employees from discussing their wages, hours and working conditions. See report. The employer’s prior policy had prohibited employees from depicting the employer "in any way" on social media sites or writing disparaging comments about co-workers or superiors.
So, no agency decision resulted from the complaint. But, this will surely not be the last Facebook case….
