405.00000 – EMPLOYER INTERFERENCE, RESTRAINT, COERCION; THREATS OR PROMISES
405.01000 – In General

An employer’s statement interferes with employee rights when it contains a threat of reprisal or force, or promise of benefit. Employer’s communications via email and website about a bonus paid only to non-represented employees were not coercive because they did not contain a threat or promise, and no threat or promise could be implied from the circumstances surrounding the communications.
