Workplace Recording a no-no, I don't think so- (say the NLRB!)

On December 24, 2015, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued a decision in Whole Foods Market, Inc., 363 NLRB No. 87 (Dec. 24, 2015), finding for the first time that it is unlawful for an employer to  adopt a work rule that prohibits employees from recording company meetings or conversations with coworkers without a valid legal or business justification. This decision is another in a long line of cases in which the NLRB has deemed employer handbook policies unlawful.  Employers that maintain policies that do not pass muster under NLRB law risk having their union-election victories overturned—making it crucial for employers to understand the current state of labor law with respect to such policies
