  • A recent decision by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB or Board) has imposed requirements on employers to generally allow their employees to use the employer’s email systems in support of union organizing efforts and other non-business activity protected by the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), even if the employer’s policy is that its email system is provided strictly for business use.
