Attorney Bob Hinton Presents at Connecticut Conference of Municipalities
Robert C. Hinton, an attorney in Pullman & Comley’s Labor, Employment Law and Employee Benefits practice, presented at the 2018 Connecticut Conference of Municipalities on October 30 during the Session C Workshops on Understanding the Contours of Employee Protected Speech and Social Media.
During the session, Bob reviewed why it is essential that employers, especially municipalities, understand the boundaries of employee protected speech in the context of both union and nonunion employees under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). He also addressed how employers should effectively regulate social media in the workplace. Finally, he discussed the National Labor Relations Board’s guidelines to help employers develop social media policies that do not run afoul of the NLRA.
