US National Labor Relations Board investigating two Apple employee complaints


The U.S. National Labor Relations Board is examining two complaints filed by Apple employees, according to a report on Thursday.

Two cases were filed with the NLRB’s Oakland office on Aug. 26 and Sept. 1, Reuters reports. While the report fails to offer additional details, the filings in question pertain to apparent workplace harassment.

The complaint in August cites claims of concerted activities, which are defined by the NLRB as retaliation, discharge, discipline or similar offenses, at Apple’s Sunnyvale offices. A second filing alleges coercive statements, defined as threats, promises of benefits and other nefarious interactions.

Partially redacted records seen by AppleInsider outline the basis of charges in the Sunnyvale instance, with the complainant alleging Apple management withheld work, fostered and insisted a return to a hostile work environment, reassigned job duties and forced the person to take paid administrative leave. A retaliatory employee relations investigation is also listed among the complaints.
