In late breaking news yesterday, the National Labor Relations Board has asked for public input on the question of if or when an offensive and/or profane outbursts by an employee become so egregious that the employee loses the protection of the National Labor Relations Act. By a familiar vote of 3-1, the Board invited amicus briefs in the case of a ruling against General Motors for suspending an employee who cursed out a manager with particularly profane and offensive language. The vote requesting public input would seem to indicate a further willingness on the part of the NLRB to revisit and revise some of the more expansive views the agency adopted during the Obama administration. Parties wishing to file amicus briefs on the question are limited to 25 pages and must submit it by November 4, 2019.
