In a decision that warrants careful consideration by employers, a three/two majority of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) recently held that an employer did not violate the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) by maintaining an e-mail policy that prohibited employees from using its e-mail system to send “non-job-related solicitations.” See Guard Publishing Co., 351 NLRB No. 70 (Dec. 16, 2007, released Dec. 21, 2007).

<a >Illinois Delays Enforcement of State Law Prohibiting E-Verify Participation.</A>
Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) Secretary Michael Chertoff has announced that the State of Illinois has agreed not to enforce a statute that “effectively forbids Illinois employers from enrolling in the department’s E-Verify system.” Illinois, therefore, will not enforce the statute, which was to become effective on January 1, 2008, until a lawsuit brought by DHS is resolved.
