The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in LA Specialty Produce Company recently overturned an administrative law judge’s (ALJ) finding that an employer’s confidentiality rule and media rule violated the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). Applying the balancing test articulated in its 2017 Boeing decision for the first time, the NLRB emphasized that a work rule is lawful if, when reasonably interpreted, it does not interfere with rights protected by the NLRA. The work rule must be considered in the context of its everyday application.

The rule is unlawful only if the adverse impact on NLRA rights outweighs the justification for the rule.
