Date   Oct 28, 2014

As election time approaches, employers may find themselves dealing with a variety of issues ranging from compliance with voting leave laws to managing disputes arising from political discussions and campaigning in the workplace. 

As election time approaches, employers may find themselves dealing with a variety of issues ranging from compliance with voting leave laws to managing disputes arising from political discussions and campaigning in the workplace.  FordHarrison partner Salvador Simao and James Davies, a partner with our Ius Laboris UK affiliate Lewis Silkin, address these issues in When Voting Rights and Politics Enter the Workplace, published in the October 2014 edition of Corporate Counsel magazine. The article, which is available on the In-Depth Analysis section of the FordHarrison website, provides an overview of employers' obligations under US and UK law when dealing with issues relating to voting leave and political affiliation. The article also includes charts of US state laws addressing voting leave requirements and political affiliation protections.
