I baked a fresh batch of Lawffice Links to mark the occasion (warning: employer-side bloggers are not happy):
- Let's start with the actual ruling in Costco Wholesale Corporation and United Food and Commercial Workers Union, Local 371;
- Eric Meyer frames it as NLRB's 1st social media ruling: Slams Costco policy; greenlights defamation;
- Molly DiBianca weighs in with Sticks 'n Stones May Break Your Bones, But Workers Can Defame You;
- Maybe Jon Hyman liked it . . . NLRB continues to attack facially neutral employment policies . . . or maybe not; and
- SHRM also chimed in with NLRB: Costco Policy Against Defamatory Statements Violated NLRA.
UPDATE: Not really a defense, but Seth Borden hit me on Twitter with his take: National Labor Relations Board Issues First Decision Striking Down Employer's Social Media Policy.
