National Labor Relations Act
Lesson 02 Case Study
Congress enacted the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”) in 1935 to protect the rights of employees and employers, to encourage collective bargaining, and to curtail certain private sector labor and management practices, which can harm the general welfare of workers, businesses and the U.S. economy. Now with technology in the workplace and social media, the National Labor Relations Board has accused many different companies of illegally firing employees after they criticized their supervisor on social media. This has happened all over the country now. Please find a case like this or related to one similar. Is it a violation of employee rights if their employers monitor their speech on Facebook or other social media websites? Do employees have an obligation to present their employer in a positive light even when they are not at work? Why or why not? What is the law?
Find and discuss your case and answer the questions in detail. Submit this in an APA formatted paper 1 to 2 pages to the drop box in the classroom. Follow the grade rubric for full points.
