About the Program: Today’s polarized environment presents many challenges for employers.  One such challenge is how to respond to reports of employees’ off-duty conduct.  Off-duty conduct – particularly when captured or reported online — may affect the workplace and other employees, threaten the company’s reputation, or alienate customers or investors.  A labyrinth of state off-duty conduct laws, social media statutes, and risks under the National Labor Relations Act, only makes the issues more complex.  

Join our experienced panel as they provide practical advice for employers when considering whether and how to respond to off-duty conduct, including:

  • A comparison of state off-duty conduct laws,
  • Analysis of the NLRB’s approach to off-duty conduct, 
  • Title 7 considerations and nuances, and
  • Hypothetical situations designed to provide pragmatic strategies. 

Cost: There is no cost to attend, however registration is required.
