What are your rights when it comes to managing and regulating employees’ behavior – in and outside of the office?

One of your employees is all over social media taking part in a protest that includes violent clashes and racist insults.  What should you do?  Fire that employee?

What about a First Amendment protest like Colin Kaepernick at work? What legal landmines could you face for taking action against an employee for expressing religious, political, or ideological views?

The lines between on and off duty conduct are increasingly blurred. In fact, the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) stance on monitoring worker behavior has forced employers to be very careful in how they seek to restrict employee conduct, both on- and off-the-clock.

Are you confident you know what behavior you can demand from employees – and what you can put a stop to, legally?
