    A New York National Labor Relations Board judge ruled that a Hooters franchise cannot force its employees to act in a respectful manner toward customers, nor could managers punish employees for insubordination.

    The local NLRB judge ordered the Hooters franchise to post a sign on its premises reading “WE WILL NOT maintain or enforce a provision in our Employee Handbook that prohibits employees from being disrespectful to the Company, other employees, customers, partners, and competitors, posting no offensive language or pictures and no negative comments about the Company or coworkers of the Company” after declaring such policies illegal, according to an NLRB ruling issued on May 18.

    *note: I am not promoting the Hooters organization. This post is about the ruling from the judge not the organization.
