The NLRB just loves getting involved in these Facebook firing cases. But while the most recent example—involving a sports bar in Connecticut—has pundits proclaiming that employers can never fire employees for a Facebook “Like,” it’s worth noting these suits must be considered on a case-by-case basis.

It seems every day—or at least every week—there are new sanctions against Russia by the United States. With the conflict between Russia and the Ukraine showing no sign of a resolution anytime soon, and the sanctions likely continuing to expand, exporters need to be careful.

As Steven Petrie of Faegre Baker Daniels explains to LXBN in advance of the 2014 Legal Marketing Technology Conference West, technology plays a crucial role.
