Legal Obligations and Liabilities When Employees Engage in Strikes, Protests and Absenteeism
1 hour 30 minutes
What are your legal obligations when employees engage in controversial off-duty conduct?
Whether it's on the news, via social media or in the workplace, there is no doubt that political opinions, discourse and activity have seeped into our everyday lives more than ever before. As an employer just trying to run a business in this environment, what types of activity must you tolerate or excuse from your employees? When can you step in and say ‘enough' and how should you do it? This topic will address laws protecting off-duty conduct in various states, First Amendment issues, the National Labor Relations Act and crafting effective policies to protect the company from liability.
- You will be able to review when you can/should fire an employee for their political conduct.
- You will be able to recognize employer's legal rights when addressing what employees say or do in and out of the workplace.
- You will be able to discuss how to manage highly political or polarizing employees.
- You will be able to identify if potentially racist/sexist conduct can ever be protected.
