Recent conflicts in the Middle East have caused friction/disputes in some workplaces when employees speak their minds. Employee speech issues also often arise from other controversial subjects. This program will review the legal and practical issues arising from employee speech. More specifically, it addresses how employee speech can implicate:

  1. Constitutional protections;
  2. Federal, state and local anti-discrimination laws;
  3. Employee rights under the National Labor Relations Act; and
  4. New York Labor Law, Section 201-d (the New York "Outside Activities" law) its protections and limitations related to speech.

This program will also provide real world practical guidance on how employers and employees can best navigate the complex political, social and legal implications of employee speech.
