    About the Presentation

    How far can employees go in expressing personal opinions, views, and political beliefs at work?  Can employers discipline or even terminate employees who make hurtful, or even hateful, statements to coworkers or customers?  Can employers take action against employees who express views that are incompatible with the views of the owners or senior managers?  This presentation will answer these questions and provide practical guidance on how to manage employees who express points of view that sound extreme, are outside the norm for your workplace, or are simply disliked by members of management.
