Steven Greenhouse of the New York TImes reports on employer attempts to discourage negative online employee comments about working conditions and employer policies and the National Labor Relations Board's response. Mr. Greenhouse notes that the NLRB has judged many such attempts to be against the law. The agency "says workers have a right to discuss work conditions freely and without fear of retribution, whether the discussion takes place at the office or on Facebook." Here are links to the agency's recent reports on the issue.
