Description:

The line between on-duty conduct and off-duty conduct is becoming more blurred all the time.

Following the deadly rally in Charlottesville, for example, participants were identified (and vilified) on social media. At least one was forced to resign from his job in Berkeley, California, according to various media outlets.

And Google is now caught up in a swirl of controversy over the firing of engineer James Damore, who published a controversial memo about female software engineers. Google defended the termination, stating that Damore’s memo violated the company’s code of conduct by perpetuating gender stereotypes.

Can you fire employees for off-duty conduct, or for on-duty conduct that doesn’t reflect the views of your organization as a whole? Must you do so? What are the legal risks of getting too involved or not involved enough?

Don’t miss our timely and thought-provoking webinar when our speaker, veteran employment lawyer Mark Schickman, will clearly spell out what conduct is legally protected, what conduct is not, and how employers should respond during these turbulent times.

You’ll learn:

  • The legal issues recent “Unite the Right” protests and other causes are raising for employers nationwide right now
  • Examples of state laws that limit an employer’s response to employee actions that go against the organization’s culture
  • The action plan to follow if your company is being pressured to fire workers for their beliefs or involvement with causes that protesters deem unacceptable
  • What you legally can and cannot do to monitor and restrict employees’ political or ideological speech in and out of the workplace
  • What you can legally do to monitor and respond appropriately to employees’ postings to social media, emails, and intranets that you believe violate the code of conduct
  • When employees code-of-conduct violations could spark discrimination, harassment, or negligence claims against your organization
  • The legal landmines you could face for taking action against an employee for expressing religious, political, or ideological views
  • How to draft and enforce your code-of-conduct policy so it serves as a tool for protecting your company’s interests without crossing the legal line

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
