What Workers Can and Can't Say on Facebook: The NLRB Loophole

Ever say your boss is a "jerk" or start trashing your employer on Facebook? It might well get you fired and up to now, generally does. But a loophole under the NLRB around union organizing, in many circumstances may be deemed "protected concerted activity" and therefore protected if more than one worker is involved in the discussion. This raises a myriad of possibilities. For example, if an employee trashes his boss in a posting, probably not ok. But if a worker complains about work conditions under the guise of doing it on behalf of other workers, probably ok.
