Political discussions and arguments haven’t subsided following the election, and protests have continued across the country. Employers who want to keep their workers happy and prevent workplace arguments, hostilities, and even violence may wonder if they can just completely ban political discussions. Is it legal for an employer to prohibit employees from discussion politics in the workplace or during work hours? And what about attempting to police what employees do in their spare time related to politics, protests, or political organizations, or taking adverse employment actions against employees based on their personal social media posts? Is this a violation of your free speech protections, or is it allowable treatment of at-will employees?
