Tracey E. Diamond Quoted in Philadelphia Business Journal Article, 'Could Protesting Cost You a Job? Local Labor Lawyers Explain'

Tracey E. Diamond, of counsel with Pepper Hamilton, was quoted in the January 31, 2017 Philadelphia Business Journal article, "Could Protesting Cost You a Job? Local Labor Lawyers Explain."

In some states, like New York, protections for "lawful, off-duty conduct" extend to private sector workers, added Tracey Diamond, of counsel with Pepper Hamilton LLP who also specializes in labor and employment law.

...

"There is nothing that says you are protected on going out on your own time," she explained.

...

Your first step, of course, should be to consult your employee handbook, Diamond said.

...

"If an employee wants to take a conservative approach, maybe they should talk to their employer beforehand," Diamond said, adding that it is certainly not required. "From an employer standpoint, I’m sure they would appreciate it that before they see their employee out in the media."

...

"If it is an attorney situation," Diamond said, "they should really talk to their professional responsibility counsel."
