Summary "This book examines employment law implications for employees who exercise the right to freedom of speech, and argues for increased rights to free speech in this context. Most obviously, employees need protection when speaking about immediate threats to health and safety or serious financial malpractice, but they also need protection when participating in debate on matters that are in the public interest. This book suggests that the rights of employees to participate in debate on matters of public interest are vital to a healthy democratic system."--BOOK JACKET.
