Join us for a timely discussion on DEI initiatives and regulating employee speech rights inside and outside the workplace during an election year. We will discuss legal topics and trends related to the regulation of employee speech, including the scope of First Amendment protections, what constitutes protected speech under the National Labor Relations Act, and protections afforded by state and local governments. We will also address considerations regarding political dialogue in the workplace and best practices to address workplace conflict during election season. In addition, we’ll discuss the impact the Supreme Court’s rulings on companion cases Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. v. President and Fellows of Harvard College and Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. v. Univ. of North Carolina are still having on DEI initiatives, the legal developments in this area, and what employers should consider now as they evaluate their DEI initiatives for 2024 and beyond.  

The firm is an accredited provider of CLE in California, Colorado, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Nevada, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas. We are also accredited providers of HRCI and SHRM.
