Employee Handbooks and Employment Policies

Over the last few years, the Board has targeted vague and overly broad language in employee handbooks or employment policies because the language may have created a “chilling effect” on protected concerted activity. This approach started with social media policies but was extended to apply to employment-at-will statements, confidentiality provisions, workers' access to company property, dress codes or worker expression policies, prohibitions on certain employee communications both inside and outside the workplace, and non-disparagement policies.
