New NLRB Ruling Just Released: Employers’ Rights To Ban Personal Use Of Email And More

On December 17, 2019 the NLRB reversed its prior decision and held that employers may now restrict employee use of the employer’s email system as long as the employer does so in a non-discriminatory manner. This overruled the prior decision in which the NLRB held that there was a presumption that employees had a right to use the employer’s email system during non-working time for communications protected by Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act. This is an important decision, not just for its specific holding, but also because it may signal an end to the employee-friendly and broad-based decisions of the NLRB during the Obama era.

This informative webinar will not only cover in-depth the current NLRB decision overruling its prior holding on use of company email system but will also provide an overview of the Board’s prior positions on issues such as social media and social media policies and how those positions may soon be changing in a significant way.
