5 Employer Lessons From NLRB's Chipotle Decision

Law360, New York (October 19, 2016, 11:15 AM EDT) -- Andrew B. Prescott

Jessica Schachter Jewell Chipotle Mexican Grill's response to an employee's rogue tweets recently landed the national burrito chain in hot water with the National Labor Relations Board.[1] Significantly, it was not just Chipotle's alleged response to this employee's conduct that proved problematic for the restaurant. The NLRB's general counsel challenged a handful of Chipotle's employment policies, the majority of which had no bearing on the issues at hand. Ultimately, the NLRB, adopting the decision of the administrative law judge in pertinent part, determined that certain provisions were unlawful, while others avoided the knife.
