Employee Activism and the Workplace: Why Employers Must Take Notice Now | Sessions
In the midst of a tumultuous time, employees (and managers and executives) are speaking out at work or urging their employers to speak about pressing issues related to racism, politics, and social issues. The COVID-19 pandemic has also resulted in employees becoming very vocal about vaccinations. Join us for a timely session on how employers can balance issues relating to freedom of expression, civility, protected concerted activity, discrimination, and retaliation while minimizing business disruption and legal liability.
- Discuss what employee activism is, why it happens, and how companies can respond.
- Address the legal implications that may arise when employees are involved in political and social media campaigns, walkouts, and protests.
- Provide tips for attendees on how to effectively manage these activities while maintaining positive standards for corporate responsibility.
In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
