It’s that time again. The turn of the calendar into 2024 brings a presidential election that is likely to test the limits of polite discourse in just about every workplace. On top of presidential politics, employee activism and demands for employers to take stands on hot button social issues of the day are increasing. This webinar will address both the legal obligations and practical advice for employers seeking to navigate this important topic, including answers to the following questions:


1. What are the hot button political and social issues likely to be raised in the workplace in 2024?

2. How should employers respond to employee requests to conduct a demonstration or hand out literature in the workplace? What are the legal implications of such a response?

3. Can an employer limit employee speech on controversial political and social issues? What about t-shirts, buttons, and other messaging in the workplace?
