Topics covered will include:

  • Can I fire an employee for political speech in or out of the workplace? What types of comments are legally protected?
  • How far is too far? Are there limits to protected speech?
  • What should my social media policy say about political speech?
  • What if our employees ask the company to take a position on a political issue?
  • Update on recent litigation involving political speech in the workplace.
