Conclusions: A Right to Freedom of Speech at Work?
This chapter evaluates the status of right to free speech and suggests future developments in this area. The legal protection for the right to free speech at work is limited to protection of the right to blow the whistle on wrongdoing or malpractice at work. The more general right to freedom of expression, as defined in the main international human rights documents, does not survive entry to the workplace, and is not adequately protected against work based sanctions. The position seems to be, rather, that the employee's right to free speech is protected via his freedom to leave his employment.
