Politics and Employment Law
With COVID-19 transforming the workplace, protests changing the world, and a presidential election coming – our firm created a presentation focusing on the intersection of politics and workplace rights.
Topics to be covered include:
- Do employees have a First Amendment right to talk about politics at work?
- Can companies discipline employees for political activities at or outside of work?
- Can companies maintain policies aimed at what employees wear, do, or post on social media related to political activity?
- Can or must employers allow employees to use company property or systems to engage in political activities?
- Can companies sponsor political fundraisers, meet-the-candidate events, or advocacy-related activities, on a mandatory or voluntary basis?
- What time off must employers provide to employees to engage in political activity?
