NLRB’s Position on Social Media Policies Remains a Bungled Mess


Yesterday, NLRB Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon issued his third report on social media cases brought to the agency. This report focuses entirely on “policies governing the use of social media by employees.” Has the Acting GC solved any conundrums for employers with his latest missive? Can a company draft a social media policy with any teeth that the NLRB will conclude passes muster? Don’t count on it. The NLRB’s position on social media policies remains an absolute mess. If anything, it’s more confusing now than before Mr. Solomon issued his 3rd report.
