    Default NLRB strikes down overly-broad social media policies

    Even if It Enrages Your Boss, Social Net Speech Is Protected | NYTimes.com

    Excerpts:
    in a series of recent rulings and advisories, labor regulators have declared many such blanket restrictions illegal. The National Labor Relations Board says workers have a right to discuss work conditions freely and without fear of retribution, whether the discussion takes place at the office or on Facebook.

    ...

    But the agency has also found that it is permissible for employers to act against a lone worker ranting on the Internet.
