Following is an excerpt:

The ALJ’s decision noted multiple violations of the National Labor Relations Act. Crucially, the judge ruled that the alleged bathroom discussion was protected under the act because it involved “common concerns regarding terms and conditions of their employment.”

“This case demonstrates the current broad view of the NLRB as to what constitutes a ‘concerted protected activity,’” wrote Lauri Rasnick and Jonathan Shapiro of Epstein Becker & Green in a blog post.

Ms. Rasnick and Mr. Shapiro originally discussed this NLRB case in Financial Services Employment Law, an Epstein Becker Green blog.
