    Legal experts, labor leaders decry e-mail ruling - By Aliya Sternstein, CongressDaily
    A recent ruling by the National Labor Relations Board that lets employers block employees from using company e-mail for 'non-job-related solicitations' flies in the face of a labor law meant to protect democracy in the workplace, some professors argue.

    The decision arose after an employee at The Register-Guard, a daily newspaper in Eugene, Ore., received written warnings for sending numerous union-related e-mails. The employer prohibits the use of the company e-mail 'to solicit or proselytize for commercial ventures, religious or political causes, outside organizations, or other non-job-related solicitations.'
