Taylor Publishes Social Media Policy Insight
Commercial & Technology Transactions Senior Counsel Todd Taylor was published in the May 3 issue of Westlaw Journal Computer & Internet. Taylor’s article “Social media in the workplace: The impact of recent NLRB rulings," was also published on the Thomson Reuters “The Knowledge Effect” blog.
Taylor overviews the National Labor Relations Board’s recent social media rulings, which seek to limit both an employer’s ability to discipline employees for statements on social media sites, and also an employer’s ability to establish and enforce social media policies applicable to its workforce.
“The NLRB acting general counsel’s reports are not always clear in making the distinction between protected online posts and mere gripes,” Taylor writes.
