Last November, the NLRB's regional office in Hartford, Connecticut, issued a complaint against an employer that had disciplined an employee for something she posted on her Facebook page. The unfair labor practice complaint was previously reported on this blog.
Yesterday, the NLRB announced that the employer had agreed to settle this charge. As it relates to the portion of the complaint dealing with the employer's policies, the employer agreed (pdf) to revise its rules of conduct to ensure that they do not improperly restrict employees from discussing their wages, hours and working conditions with co-workers and others while not at work. The employer promised not to discipline employees for engaging in that conduct.
The employer came to a separate, private agreement with the discharged employee. Thus, it is unknown what terms were agreed upon to resolve that part of the complaint.
