An employee writes a memo on the natural abilities of women; the memo makes the front page of the New York Times . A supervisor carries the White Man’s Bible to a rally; he is broadcast on CNN. What can or can’t an employer do when an employee’s speech becomes a lightning rod for controversy? Listen to a distinguished panel discuss situations ripped from the news, and evaluate the cases under the NLRA, Title VII, state laws protecting political speech, and employer codes of conduct.
