First NLRB Decision on Employer Social Media Policies

Posted in Social Media

In a recent decision,Costco Wholesale Corporation (NLRB Case No. 34-CA-012421), the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) considered a social media policy for the first time. The NLRB invalidated portions of Costco’s policies and in doing so signaled that it will probably track closely with the General Counsel’s guidance when reviewing social media policies.  Mike Underwood, a Partner in our Labor & Employment Practice, and frequent contributor to the Employer Law Report blog,has a post focused on this development<.  As this may be of interest to many, we wanted to share it with you.
