Dealing with Politics at Work

October 2, 2012 at 12:11 pm

This election year is jam-packed with topics that are close to our emotions: healthcare reform, education, same-sex marriage… things that will directly affect our everyday lives.  While we want people to actively discuss and participate in the political process, how do we keep things from getting overly distracting in the workplace?

Fisher & Phillips has two articles out this week that give some great guidelines for the workplace.  And, that clarify some points of free speech that I bet you weren’t aware of.

My quick tips are:

  • Understand both employee and employer rights and boundaries
  • Have a clear policy and educate your employees
  • Focus on work at work
  • Err on the side of caution

When in doubt about a specific situation, contact your attorney.
