The National Labor Relations Board (#NLRB) has recently declared, through a series of rulings, advisories and memos, that employers cannot fire their employees for what they post on line.  However, here are a five tips for workers to think about in posting on line:

  1. We are watching you. Your employer and other co-workers are most likely following you on line, so they know what you are saying about them.
  2. Don’t post anything that you would not want someone to find, whether it is your children, your parents or a future employer.
  3. Before you turn to social media to complain or vent, try to step back before reacting.
  4. If you go negative at least be constructive.
  5. If you have something to say, say it, but don’t dwell on it.
