I am about to file a charge with local NLRB,When I asked NLRB attorney if I would be protected against any type of retaliation?She read the handbook to me and said this
"It is illegal for an employer or union to retaliate against employees for filing charges or participating in NLRB investigations or proceedings."
It does not say if former employees are protected or not?
I am worried about lawsuit claiming that I damaged their business because I talked bad about them not only to my colleagues but also outside people.(These people were employees of the stores at which we were sent to do our work).
I talked bad about them 18 months ago, when they found out they did talk to me about that but not action was taken against me, now can they suddenly bring lawsuit because of NLRB charge?I have to clarify...I said I talked bad about them (english is no tmy first language) no...actually I asked one of the managers at big chain store out of curiosity as to why my former employer is allowed to send their emplyees to work in their stores even though that work can be done by store employees themselves. I was just curious and I added in my opinion that store employees should do that work themselves as they are more familiar with their stores and policies compared third party companies/ employees.
