In some cases, employers are not fully aware of the rights employees have against an employer. According to Atlantic Steel, “there is protected concerted activity when two or more employees act together to improve their terms and conditions of employment”, meaning just two members need to band together over upset in the business.
Even further, employee conversations broadcasted via social media (Facebook, Twitter) are also protected against retaliation. Given its common usage, it is crucial that employers tune into information regarding employee rights in the workplace.
Craig J. Davidson, CEBS with the FutureOffice Network will present “Protected Concerted Employee Activity” on Tuesday, July 17th, at 10 am and will be repeated at 1 pm. All times are central time. To sign up go to http://futureofficenetwork.com/
