Whole Foods Cannot Ban Video Recording in Workplace, NLRB Says in Xmas Eve Decision

 

 


In a 2-1 Decision overturning an Administrative Law Judge, the NLRB held that Whole Foods cannot ban video recording in the workplace.It distinguished prior precedent in a hospital setting saying that vegetables do not have Privacy and HIPAA concerns.  At the trial, the Company witness admitted that the rule prohibited protected concerted activity, as well as unprotected activity.  For that reason, the rule was hed to be unlawful.  Since it was in effect at many locations, the Employer was required to rescind the rule and post at all locations.

 

A copy of the decision is attached.
