NLRB Ruling on Audio and Video Recording by Employees

On December 24, 2015, the National Labor Relations Board in Whole Foods Market, Inc. addressed internal policies prohibiting employees from using phones, digital cameras, or any other audio-visual equpiment to record company meetings and workplace conversations without management’s explicit permission.  The Board found, in a two to one decision, that employees could reasonably construe these polices as prohibiting Section 7 activity and that the policies therefore violated Section 8(a)(1) of the National Labor Relations Act.
