Introduction: Freedom of Speech and Employment
That freedom of speech is a fundamental human right is well established. The right to free speech or freedom of expression is protected in virtually all international and domestic human rights documents. Yet the scope of the right, and the circumstances in which it can be exercised, have yet to be fully determined. This book aims to examine the scope of the right to freedom of speech in the specific context of the workplace. The view taken throughout this book is that the right to free speech should be given greater protection in the workplace than has traditionally been the case. It holds that employees should not have work based penalties imposed upon them for exercising their right to free speech in an appropriate manner and at an appropriate time.
