Dallas, Texas Employment Lawyer: Get Ready for Election Day

/ 11/02/2012

A presidential election always brings excitement, and 2012 is no different. But do you know the laws regarding voting and employment? Dallas, Texas employment lawyer Keith Clouse highlights the Texas Workforce Commission’s page on this topic at


First of all, an employee should be allowed time to vote. Many people like to vote early to avoid the crowds on Election Day. But, if an employee has not already voted, the employee is entitled to take time off for voting on Election Day, unless the employee has at least two consecutive hours to vote outside of the employee’s working hours. Second, an employer may not retaliate against an employee who voted for or against a particular candidate or who refused to reveal how the employee voted.


An employer should also set the tone for any political discussions held at the workplace. Employees should be encouraged to keep their discussions courteous, respectful, and focused on the issues. Of course, if it is appropriate, an employer should stop employees from holding political discussions in front of customers or if the discussions are keeping employees from getting work done.
