The National Labor Relations Board has mounted challenges to personnel policies and practices that employers, particularly in non-union workplaces, have long regarded as legitimate and common place. To avoid unfair labor practice findings, employers need to reconsider the wording of policies and other personnel documents that may run afoul of the Board's current interpretation of employee rights under the National Labor Relations Act. Some of the challenged policy provisions include:
- Confidentiality of business information
- Restrictions on disparaging or false communications
- Off-duty premises access
- Dispute resolution and grievance
- Disclosure of personal information
- At-will disclaimers
- Social media
Bracewell partner Leslie Byrd hosted an informative discussion on structuring personnel policies and practices to conform with the restrictions set by the NLRB.
