Monitoring And Restricting Employee Conduct: From Speaking Out To Lighting Up
|Date / Time:
The National Labor Relations Board has carved out quite a pro-union landscape in recent years, forcing employers to be very careful in how they seek to restrict employee conduct, both on- and off-the-clock.
Many employers have found themselves on the NLRB's bad side for overstepping the bounds of the National Labor Relations Act in trying to restrict employees from using social media to complain about supervisors or voice other opinions about their organizations.
In addition to social media, issues such as smoking, drinking, and weight-management are other workforce concerns. It's not uncommon for employers to consider tacking on higher deductibles to employees who smoke, are obese, or have other health-related conditions that could affect the bottom line. But how far can you legally go to potentially penalize employees for engaging in unhealthy conduct?
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll get a framework for identifying the ways in which you can restrict or prohibit certain employee conduct, and pointers on how to tell when you may be crossing a legal line when seeking to restrict or prevent an employee's speech, habits, and other behavior.

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
