Effective and Legal Ways to Avoid Political Unrest in the Workplace: How to Manage Heated Discussions at Work

As midterm elections near, the political debates taking place across the country are likely to spill over into the workplace. As a result, employers may encounter heated discussions around the watercooler about the candidates and issues, or explicit statements about employees’ political stances.

This places employers in a tricky situation. You want your workers to be comfortable expressing themselves -- but you also have a right to a peaceful, productive work environment. To complicate matters further, some of the topics being debated can lead to claims of harassment.

What can you do to protect your business? What is acceptable under the law?

Watch our free webinar, and you'll learn:

  • How office politics can lead to a harassment lawsuit
  • The definition of a hostile environment, based on real-life scenarios
  • What you can and can't do about employee use of social media
  • Tips to legally limit on-the-clock political discussions
  • Practical approaches to keeping the peace and restoring productivity

For more information on how to deal with political discussions in the workplace, download our free E-Guide — Politics in the Workplace: How to Manage Differences and Keep the Peace, which will help you know your rights, as well as those of your employees.

Over the last year, many states and cities have stepped up their own legislative activity by passing a record number of new employment laws. And with each new law there is a potential poster update or new poster being issued. Depending on your state, you may now be required to post up to 21 labor law notices. And that doesn’t include local postings: more cities and counties are issuing mandatory posters than ever before.
