Employers Brace For Boycotts

Leon Patricios was quoted in the National Law Journal's article on employment attorneys "getting swamped with calls from businesses that are unclear on how to discipline workers who skip or boycott work to attend immigration rallies popping up across the United States." The article outlined a number of Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaints that have been filed by workers who were fired for missing work to attend protests for immigrant rights. Mr. Patricios was quoted as saying that employers "be careful to apply workplace rules uniformly." Patricios noted that "a company runs the risk of getting hit with a discrimination lawsuit if employees are allowed to skip work in one situation, but not another."
