Can You Protest Trump at Work?


Can I protest Trump (or any President) at work?

In Connecticut, yes you can. We have a law that prohibits employers from firing employees who exercise their rights under the First Amendment. It’s ok to put an anti-Trump sign on your desk. Just don’t do anything to disrupt the work place.

In Massachusetts, there is no similar law that applies the First Amendment to private employers.  Public employers, however, are not allowed to fire employees for expressing themselves under the First Amendment.

I worked for a retailer and was a Plaintiff in a class action for unpaid overtime wages. Hayber, McKenna & Dinsmore did an amazing job of getting our unpaid overtime back to us. Every one at the firm that I dealt with through that process was wonderful to work with. I appreciate all they did for us more than you will ever know.
