Can I prohibit my employees from discussing any and all information regarding the company, its business plans, its partners, its policies, new business efforts etc?

By Karen Ward. The surprising answer is no.   A Federal District Court ruled that employees could reasonably interpret the rules unqualified prohibition of the release of “any information” regarding “its partners” to unlawfully restrict employees’ discussion of wages and other terms and conditions of employment with fellow employees.  A permissible limitation is that employees may limit discussion of working conditions, including pay issues, in areas where there might be customers but an employer cannot limit such discussion completely without violating the National Labor Relations Act.

Any policy whether in writing or not, can violate the NLRA, if it prohibits employees from discussing their working conditions.  Please note that these laws apply to you even if you do not have any unionized employees.
