- Apple is currently facing seven unfair labor practices charges.
Apple has sent a memo to its staff that affirms their right to talk about work conditions and pay internally at the company or even externally if desired.
In an internal memo obtained by NBC News, Apple says that its employees are not prohibited from talking about "wages, hours, or working conditions" internally or externally.
Veena Dubal, a professor at the University of California Hastings College of Law, said that the memo is a win for workers but still shows how easy it is for companies to get away with violating labor law.
Eight labor violations have been filed against Apple since August.
