Free Speech Issues in Public Employment

1.0 Standard CLE Credit

Public employees have a unique relationship with their government. In one capacity, the government is prohibited by the constitution from interfering with certain civil rights. But in its role as employer, the government can restrict one’s liberties during the workday and beyond, or at least impose consequences on an employee who exercised those rights. That unique relationship is especially prevalent in the context of free speech. Join us for a one-hour discussion, hosted by Assistant Anoka County Attorney Andrew Jackola, exploring the rift between a public employee’s First Amendment rights and their government-employer’s workplace speech restrictions.
