Regulating Individual Expression
On & Off the Job:
"I Just Want to Be Me!"
From tattoos and piercings to T-shirts, from bumper stickers to computer screen savers and more, employers are called on to balance employees’ individual expression against the rights of other workers and the employer’s business interests.
Individuality can lead to a unique workplace, but restrictions on an employee’s expression can lead to discrimination lawsuits… lower morale… and unwanted government attention.
As a result, employers are confused about where — and when — they can put their foot down. That’s why we’ve developed this new, fast-paced and entertaining webinar, which will help attendees guard against these claims while maintaining sanity in their workplaces.
Join us Friday, August 1, to learn exactly what you CAN and CAN’T do to regulate employees’ conduct — and how to satisfy the often-conflicting demands of the law.
You’ll learn practical, concrete answers to questions such as:
- When can you legally monitor employees' email, blogging and Facebook posts — both at work and at home?
- When MUST you monitor an employee’s Internet use?
- Can you refuse to hire people who smoke?
- Can you tell employees to cover up tattoos or piercings?
- Can long hair on a man be considered “religious expression”?
- Can you prevent employees from talking about their pay or benefits?
- When do dress and grooming restrictions go too far? (Use our model policy)
- How can you say ‘Yes’ to Girl Scout cookie sales but ‘No’ to other solicitations — including unions?
- What type of political speech must you tolerate inside and outside the office?
- Does a boss’s favoritism toward an employee he’s dating count as sex discrimination? You may be surprised. (See our model fraternization policy)
Get your own problems solved! Pose your conduct questions to our expert speaker, Rodney Harrison, during the Q&A session.
Remember, you ARE the boss of your employees. So it’s important to know your rights when it comes to managing and regulating their behavior — both in and out of the workplace.
