Stephen Bell Dorsey & Whitney LLP
When: April 24, 2020
Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PST

• Can an employer prohibit political speech?
• Can an employer prohibit criticism of the workplace conditions?

• What about political parties Democrat v. Republican?
• Is fairness a consideration when allowing speech on certain topics but prohibiting others?
More topics will be covered, so be sure to join us!
