With general election campaigning back in full swing, employers might be struggling with employees spending more time debating and canvassing for the political parties they support than working!
Employees are paid to work so an employer is perfectly entitled to stop them using their work time and company resources for political campaigning. Also, this could be a sensible move, not just for productivity reasons, but to help minimise fallouts amongst colleagues over which political party should win.
Any ban on campaigning in the workplace should be applied consistently to all employees to avoid any allegations of discrimination or unfairness.
Two new polls published on Thursday night suggest a further continuation of the trend we've seen throughout the campaign so far. The gap between the Conservatives and Labour has narrowed again. It's down to eight points in Kantar Public's poll and just five points in YouGov's - smaller than the actual gap between the parties at the 2015 election.
