Arnstein & Lehr Milwaukee Partner Charles W. Pautsch and Associate Jesse R. Dill have written an article that appeared in the April 24 issue of Thomson Reuters News & Insight Legal. The article, titled “Social media and Section 7: Why companies should think N-L-R-A when employees p-o-s-t,” discusses a memorandum report issued by the National Labor Relations Board, Office of the General Counsel, emphasizing that employee rights under Section 7 of the NLRA must be at the forefront of considerations when creating a social media workplace policy or disciplining an employee for social networking activity. Section 7 of the NLRA grants employees the right to engage in “concerted activities for the purpose of collective bargaining or other mutual aid or protection.” The report also states that employers should be careful in how they discipline an employee’s social media activity.
