Midterm Election Alert: How to Deal with Political Discussions in the Workplace


Meeting Description:

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.

Attend 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
