Read Case Study 4-1, Salting, on pages 155-156 of your textbook. Then, address the following:
1. Explain how the companys treatment of both the covert and overt salts applications for jobs compares to the
recommended counter-salting steps for employers.
2. Would either the covert or the overt salts in this case satisfy the NLRB ruling that applicants for employment
must be genuinely interested in seeking employment before claiming protection under the NLRA?
3. Does the companys opposition to becoming a union shop indicate that there was anti-union animus in refusing to
consider the overt salts for employment?
Your response should be a minimum of 150 words per question. All sources used, including the textbook, must be
referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations in APA format.
One of the reference must be:
