Very good analysis. It is sometimes difficult to parse the NLRB’s reasoning. The key for employers is that there was a reasonable basis for the termination that did not implicate the employee’s protected activities. The take away for employees: make sure you gripe to at least one other employee before you lampoon your employer. @adlerlaw
