Quicken Loans violated federal labor law when it fired a banker accused of griping about the job in the restroom, a National Labor Relations Board judge has ruled, saying the profanity-laced conversation was protected activity and that the man who overheard the exchange from a restroom stall accused the wrong employee. Administrative Law Judge Dickie Montemayor said Quicken Loans Inc. must rehire mortgage banker Austin Laff and pay him for lost earnings, as well as remove workplace rules he found to be unlawful restraints on employees’ rights to discuss working conditions. In February 2015, Laff said he had asked a co-worker, Michael Woods, how his day was going when they crossed paths in the restroom, and Woods said, “It’s been kind of crazy.” Woods then complained about a client he’d been assigned to help, but who had already received refinancing services four years ago. According to Laff, Woods then said, “Why doesn’t he call a client care specialist and stop wasting my fucking time?” Jorge Mendez, another employee, was in a restroom stall and overheard the conversation.
