  • The Hartford Regional office of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) recently announced that it will pursue a complaint against American Medical Response of Connecticut, Inc. for allegedly terminating an employee because she posted negative comments about her supervisor on her Facebook page. The NLRB contends that the Facebook posts are protected concerted activity and, therefore, the employee’s termination violated the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). The complaint also alleges that the employer maintained and enforced an overly broad blogging and Internet posting policy.
