NLRB Issues Guidance Memo On Political Activity As Protected Conduct/ Williams Kastner Labor & Employment Advisor


In response to employer uncertainty about disciplining or even discharging employees

participating in nationwide and local demonstrations such as the recent May Day rallies in

opposition to immigration reform, the General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board

recently issued a Guidance Memorandum. The guidance provided in the Memorandum may

prove helpful to employers – both union and non-union – especially as the current political

season heats up and the potential for employee activity at the worksite, or, more importantly,

away from the site when the employee is supposed to be working, increases. This article discusses the Guidance Memorandum.
