In the article, McCrary addresses employers’ monitoring of employees’ social media use. She explains that employees are protected by the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) when they engage in protected activities (enumerated by Section 7 and protected by Section 8 of the NLRA) and warns that the NLRA limits employers’ discipline of employees based on their social media activities.
