The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) last month said it planned to file a complaint against media firm Thompson Reuters for reprimanding a reporter over a Twitter post that criticized.
According to The New York Times, the reporter tweeted, “One way to make this the best place to work is to deal honestly with Guild members.”
Federalgives employees the right to discuss working conditions, whether around the water cooler or in the social media world. The NLRB settled a similar case in February involving a worker fired for Facebook postings critical of her boss.
