Employers need to ensure they are following state laws and the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) when firing or disciplining employees for offensive social media posts. With the current political climate, you should be holding your employees accountable for social media conduct that does not align with company values, especially any type of hate speech or hostile language that threatens work environments or damages client relationships.
