14th Annual ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law Conference
Holly Sutton is a panelist at the 14th Annual ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law Conference live webinar, "Political Speech at Work: What Is Fair and What Is Foul."
Some believe that political discussions in the workplace oftentimes result in reduced productivity, poorer work quality, difficulty getting work done, a more negative view of coworkers, more stress, and increased workplace hostility. Others believe that robust political discussions are integral to a fully informed workforce. As increasingly partisan political discussions spill into the workplace, our panel will discuss how employers and employees should handle political discussions in the workplace including are employers allowed to regulate political discussions, are employees legally allowed to wear a MAGA hat or #MeToo button at work, are employees allowed to use company email or hand out fliers at work to solicit for political causes, and can employers force employees to attend a speech at work by a political candidate.
