Read the attached case study “salting” and answer the following questions:
1. Explain how the company’s treatment of both the “covert” and “overt” salts applications for jobs compares to the recommended counter-salting steps for employers.
2. Would either the “covert” or the “overt” salts in this case study satisfy the NLRB ruling that applicants for employment must be genuinely interested in seeking employment before claiming protection under the NLRA?
3. Does the company’s opposition to becoming a union shop indicate that there was an anti-union animus in refusing to consider the “overt” salts for employment?
