    Topic 1: U-Tube Employee Comments

    Your boss comes to your office. He has just seen a YouTube video.

    A single person appears in the video.  Although he appears in the shadows in an effort to hide his identity, the boss clearly recognizes who it is.

    The person names the company and makes disparaging remarks about the boss and the company. He also complains of unsafe conditions - some of which you know or strongly suspect are true.

    The person recently received an unfavourable performance evaluation. The boss wants to fire the employee immediately. You attended an HR conference and learned that the NLRB has spoken on this subject. 

    1. What has NLRB said on the subject? 

    2. What does a specific state law say on the issue? 

    3. Is the Dawnmarie Souza's case relevant to this set of facts? If so in what way?

    4. Based on the NLRB, specific state law and Dawnmarie case, can your boss fire the employee and if so on what grounds and why or why not?

    You must substantively respond to two colleagues. 

     Use a minimum of two HR/legal references to support your conclusions.

     Here are a few to get you started.

    Topic 2: Employee Comments on Public Blog

    You have learned that an employee is writing a publicly-accessible blog. He is using his own name, and the name of the company.

    In his blog he makes accurate and humorous comments on fellow employees - who you easily recognize from his descriptions.  Some of these comments are unflattering.

    1. What advice would you provide the CEO of the company? Consider in your advice - Should the CEO respond or not to the blog? Why or why not?  And if so, what should blog say?

    2. What actions, if any, should our CEO take against the blogger?

    3. What specific actions should the company take to protect its brand?

    4. Pick a specific state law and is it applicable and if so why and if not why not?

    You must substantively respond to two colleagues. 

    Use a minimum of two HR/legal references to support your conclusions.
