Event description

Description

More than a year after the election, the heated nature of the national political debate is still raging. It was inevitable that some the these conversations started happening at work.

This creates a new set of challenges for HR managers. Can you allow employees to voice their political opinions even though it might cause discomfort among co-workers or do you create a workplace free of political discourse?

This council addresses the legal issues surrounding your employees’ first amendment rights and your company’s authority to regulate conduct in order to minimize distractions and conflict.

Topics:

  • Establishing a communication policy for employees regarding politics

  • Constructive ways to talk politics in the office

  • How managers should address political discussions at work

  • Research findings on the reported effects of discussing the 2016 US presidential campaign

Attorney Patrick McHale will guide you through the legal issues that may surface with this issue and organizational development expert Cheryl Chester will provide guidance on how the HR manager can keep the company a productive place for business and not a political battlefield.

Presenters:

Patrick McHale, Partner, Kainen, Escalera and McHale, PC

Cheryl Chester, Practice Leader, Organizational Effectiveness, KardasLarson, LLC
