Keith Covington Quoted in Law360 Regarding Significance of Recent NLRB Ruling
Keith Covington was quoted in a Law360 article entitled “Lawyers Weigh In On NLRB Employer Email Ruling,” exploring the significance of a recent ruling by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), holding that workers have a right to use their employers’ email systems for non-business purposes.
“The majority’s Purple Communications ruling effectively gives employees a statutory right to use employer email systems for non-business purposes, including union organizing,” said Covington. “In shifting the balance toward greater employee rights, the majority brushed aside as irrelevant the fact that today’s employees already have many other options, such as personal electronic devices and social media, that they can use to communicate with each other.”
