  • When you give employees their raises, do you tell them not to discuss their compensation with other employees? Does your employee handbook contain a policy that instructs employees not to discuss their compensation with others, either within the company or outside of the company? Do you have a social media policy that advises employees that they cannot post comments critical of their employer or other employees on Facebook or other social media? And do you think you are safe in firing employees who violate those rules? If so, think again. The National Labor Relations Board ("NLRB") is likely to order you to reinstate those employees with full back pay.
