- Why are some Facebook and other social media posts that include juvenile gripes, name-calling, and profanity covered?
- Why are similarly immature posts not covered?
- Why does the NLRB think so many social media employee policies violate the NLRA?
- Finally, there’s one case standing for the unremarkable proposition that union organizers showing up at a nonunion work site and harassing immigrant workers, and then posting video of it on YouTube, violates the NLRA.
Of course, the answer is "context" – and that will be the focus of my posts.
