Employees Protected from Political Viewpoint Discrimination by Employers

Effective 9/6/2023, employees in NYS have greatly expanded rights to freedom of speech and conscience. Employees can now avoid their employer's views on politics or religion. This is huge. 

Specifically, A6604, amends Labor Law 201-d, which prohibits employment discrimination for political activities and recreational activities. Under the law, an employee can sue for equitable relief and damages. 

Key Amendments 

Now, the law defines:

"Political matters" as "matters relating to elections for political office, political parties, legislation, regulation and the decision to join or support any political party or political, civic, community, fraternal or labor organization."

"Religious matters" as "matters relating to religious affiliation and practice and the decision to join or support any religious organization or association." 

Under the amended law, employers cannot force employees to attend meetings or listen to / view communications primarily designed to express the employer’s opinions on Religious matters or Political matters.

There is also a notification requirement where employers must post a sign in workplaces informing employees of their rights as per this section.

FOX LiveNOW: Attorney Andrew Lieb Analyzes SCOTUS' Ghost Guns Decision and Tory Lanez Sentencing

Attorney Andrew Lieb joined LiveNOW from FOX to both offer clarity and insight into the Supreme Court's decision to reinstate the regulation of ghost guns, and to analyze Rapper Tory Lanez' sentencing.  

Ghost GunsThe Supreme Court's 5-4 decision to reinstate the regulation does not indicate a final stance on the regulation's substance. Rather, it's a preservation of the status quo pending appeal. Lieb's legal interpretation suggests that to address the ghost gun issue effectively, Congress might consider legislation to ensure that assembled guns and unassembled kits adhere to the same regulations, simplifying enforcement and closing potential legal loopholes.

The Lanez Conviction: The case of Tory Lanez's shooting of Megan Thee Stallion has legal circles and the public alike dissecting the intricacies of judicial sentencing. The ten-year sentence Lanez received, against the backdrop of the prosecution's 13-year recommendation and the potential 22+ year maximum. A criminal act was committed, and the judicial system delivered a sentence in response to it.

CBS NY: NY State Legislature To Take Up New Gun Bill. Legal Analysis w/ Constitutional Attorney Andrew Lieb


With guns, we need to separate our policy evaluation from our constitutional analysis.
