The Purple Communications Inc. and Communications Workers of America, AFL-CIO, was released by the NLRB on December 11 2014. As expected, the Board ruled that employees with access to an employer’s e-mail system may use the employer’s e-mail system to discuss the terms and conditions of their employment, so long as it is done during non-working hours. This ruling applies to discussions with co-workers and those who are not co-workers and to unionized and non-unionized environments. If you need assistance revising your e-mail policy, please contact Holly A. Corkery at Lynch Dallas, P.C. at email@example.com or 319-365-9101.
