This information-packed webinar explores what you CAN and CAN’T do to regulate employees’ conduct — and how to satisfy the often-conflicting demands of the law, including:
- How you can determine if you’ve crossed a legal line when seeking to restrict or prevent an employee’s speech, habits, and other behavior,
- What you CAN and CAN’T do to restrict “bad” behaviors in employees, and
- How to determine if it’s legal to restrict employees from using social media to complain about supervisors or voice other opinions about their organizations.
In just 75 minutes, you’ll get a framework for identifying the ways in which you can restrict or prohibit certain employee conduct as it pertains to:
- Technology Communications: When you can legally monitor employees’ email, Facebook posts and blogs, both in and out of the office
- Compensation: Can you keep employees from discussing pay and other benefits?
- Drugs, alcohol, and tobacco: Can you refuse to hire or terminate someone for their use?
- Vaping or e-cigarettes: Restricting their usage in the workplace – and beyond
- Moonlighting: Can you prevent employees from taking work outside of their position?
- Tattoos and piercings: Are you legally allowed to require employees to cover them up?
- Religious expression: What does, and does not fall under this, including hair, dress and other aspects of personal presentation
- Dress codes: Do you need a 43 page dress code like USB has? How far is too far?
- Friendships: Do friendships or other relationships that extend beyond the office walls lead to trouble for the employer?
- Politics: Must employers allow political speech and wearing of written political statements in the workplace?
