to the judge and who appointed them, not the age of the law.
The ruling is, in my view, idiotic rubbish as the precedent the judge used on the media is NOT relevant to the case when looked at sanely.
The policy as quoted does NOT restrict what a person can say about the company on their own time, but does tell them not to make statements to the media rubbishing the company on company time - a very valid policy. Then the judge goes on to say the policy is wrong as it violates discussions about the union on company time. The policy does NOT limit talks with the union or talks with other staff in any way, just saying bad things to the media without prior approval.
