Tampa, Fla. – December 6, 2020 – Labor and employment attorneys Gregory A. Hearing and Matthew A. Bowles, of GrayRobinson’s Tampa law firm office, authored the Hotel Executive article "Employee Free Speech Rights in the Aftermath of the US Election." The article discusses how employers are struggling to find an effective way of keeping political discussions and opinions out of the workplace as they can lead to unfair employment practices claims. Hearing and Bowles break down their article in two parts—private sector employers and public sector employers—as the rights of employees to speak freely in the workplace can differ based on these categories.
