KRLD Radio interviews Travis Crabtree as he explains the NLRB's recent rulings on firing employees for their social media conduct.

In recent months, the National Relations Labor Relations Board has been cracking down on employers who have been taking actions against their employees for their comments on social media.  The NLRB has also criticized companies for having social media policies that are too prohibitive.  KRLD Radio interviewed Gray Reed's Travis Crabtree to explain the latest in this developing area.  You can read more about this and other internet law and marketing issues on Travis's blog emedialaw.com (http://www.emedialaw.com/nlrb-says-what-to-include-and-not-to-include-in-your-social-media-policy/).  You can also read the NLRB's Third report on this topic issued last summer by clicking here (http://mynlrb.nlrb.gov/link/document.aspx/09031d4580a375cd).
