400.00000 – EMPLOYER INTERFERENCE, RESTRAINT, COERCION; EMPLOYER INTERFERENCE WITH, RESTRAINT, OR COERCION OF EMPLOYEES
400.01000 – In General; Standards

To establish a prima facie case of interference, the charging party must allege facts showing that the employer’s conduct tends to or does result in some harm to employee rights. Employer’s payment of a bonus only to non-represented employees was not interference per se and charge failed to allege facts showing that the payment could harm employee rights in some way. Employer’s communications about the bonus via email and website did not constitute interference because they were not coercive.
