Mandatory Meetings in the Workplace

Paul Secunda takes on Wal-Mart in this new commentary for the Legal Times. Along with coauthors Melissa Hart and Marcia McCormick, he criticizes recent mandatory employee meetings at Wal-Mart that have allegedly pushed employees away from supporting the Democratic presidential nominee. They urge other states to follow the lead of New Jersey in adopting a Freedom from Employer Intimidation Act, which makes it unlawful for any employer to force its employees to attend employer-sponsored meetings whose purpose is to discuss the employer’s opinions on religious and political matters.

    It looks like the thought police are out on patrol. How dare evil corporation WalMart PAY its employees (I assume they got paid as I could not read the full article) to sit and listen to its one-sided view of politics? It should take on the Marquette School of Law model, where WE PAY the school to hear its one-sided view of politics. After all, the faculty is largely liberal, correct? How about law professors not inserting their personal politics into classrooms? NO WAY!–that would be outrageous!
