Transcript:

There are certain rights that employees have in the workplace to speak amongst themselves as co-workers regarding the terms and conditions of their employment. Therefore, if there are investigations that are ongoing in the workplace, you may very well have a right as an employee to discuss that investigation with your co-workers. An employer giving you the instruction to not discuss that investigation amongst your co-workers may be a violation of the National Labor Relations Act.

Similarly, if you are disciplined as a result of that discussion that you might have with your employees and your co-workers, you may also have rights under the act, and it’s a good idea to seek consultation with an employment lawyer so that you can understand what those are.
