In light of recent cases such as Costco and Knauz, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued a memorandum that will help employers in drafting their company's social media policy. The memorandum and the decisions made by NLRB both suggest that the social media policy should take in consideration employees' free speech right and other regulations under National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). In this regard, companies should consider reviewing their policies in order to avoid pitfalls suggested by the guidance.
