The National Labor Relations Board ("NLRB") recently reached a settlement in a closely watched case involving the discharge of a Connecticut ambulance service worker for posting negative comments about her supervisor on Facebook. We first reported on this case in November 2010 after the NLRB's Hartford regional office issued a complaint against the employer, American Medical Response of Connecticut, Inc., for violations of federal law. Under the terms of the settlement, the company has agreed to revise its Internet use and blogging policies to ensure that they do not improperly restrict employees from discussing their wages, hours and working conditions with co-workers and with others outside of the workplace. The company has also agreed not to discipline or discharge employees who engage in such discussions, deny employee requests for union representation in the future, or threaten employees with discipline for requesting union representation. The allegations regarding the employee's discharge were resolved through a separate private agreement. Although the matter did not reach a formal adjudication, the settlement permits employers to gain insight into the NLRB's position on appropriate social media policies.
