"They Said What?"  
Political Speech and Activity in the Workplace

During a presidential election year, Americans engage in more political conversation and head to the polls in greater numbers than in non-presidential election years. And, as November 3 rapidly approaches, with the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic and the national reckoning over institutional racism, politics have never been more palpable at work.

Employees will continue to express opinions, exchange viewpoints, and communicate with each other in-person, on video calls, in emails, and via instant messaging. Others will turn to social media, and some will more actively engage in the political process, including attending political rallies.

This increased political speech and activity will inevitably impact the workplace.  

In this session, Ami De Celle, Attorney, and Mark Nelson, Sr. HR Advisor, both with Archbright, will cover election year tips and topics for employers looking to legally and respectfully navigate this politically charged time, including: 

  • First Amendment Rights
  • Political Ideology Protections
  • The NLRB and the Political Activity of Union Employees
  • Politics and Harassment
  • Visual Political Statements
  • Social Media Posts Beyond Strictly Political Speech

Plan Sponsors Panel Discussion
COVID19 Impacts

This panel presentation will address the greatest challenges faced by organizations today. Panelists include:

  • Brenda McCracken, Nordstrom  
  • Wendy Rittereiser, City of Renton
  • Javon Thurman, Providence-St. Joseph Health

   In addition, our second presentation will be addressed by Archbright who will approach        the topic of political speech and tone in the workplace

Be sure to register early for this WP&BC and EBPA joint program.
