WIRTW #236 (the “reactions” edition)

Wednesday’s post dissecting the NLRB’s attack on confidential workplace investigations received a lot of feedback, on Twitter, in various LinkedIn groups, and in the comments. Here’s two of the best:

The NLRB does not understand how one sentence, in a determination, can alter an entire system, regardless of their actual intent.

I bet you $1 that investigators of workplace complaints at NLRB make standard confidentiality advisements, too.

The best comment, however, came via email from a reader who has asked to remain anonymous:

I couldn’t have said it better myself (and thanks to everyone for contributing to the discussion).
