300.04000 – Individual/Concerted/Activities/Self-Representation
Under the MMBA’s right of self-representation, individual employee complaints to the employer are protected only when they are a logical continuation of group activity and are not undertaken solely for the employee’s benefit. Employee’s complaints during staff meeting that his supervisor worked employees too hard were not protected because they expressed his personal dislike of the supervisor’s management style and were not connected to group activity.
