HMA client Fisher & Phillips LLP, a national labor and employment law firm, today reported that the National Labor Relations Board's General Counsel has issued a complaint against a Connecticut ambulance service alleging that one of its union-represented emergency medical technicians was unlawfully fired after criticizing her supervisor on Facebook. The complaint also alleges, among other things, that the company’s blogging and Internet policy “interferes with, restrains, and coerces” employees in the exercise of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act. An administrative law judge is scheduled to hear the complaint in January.
