Some people worry about the powers that unions have, and the abuses of that power … they argue that unions give too much of an advantage to workers, at the expense of the employer.

Well, apparently someone thought “we’ve regulated unions enough, let’s go the other way now.”

According to this story, your employer can now ban you from “fraterniz[ing] on duty or off duty … with co-employees.”


It’s been ruled before that employers have a lot of say in what you can do while at work or “on the job,” but this goes a step further, allowing an employer to tell you what to do while not at work – and to have legal recourse against you if you don’t do as they say.
