Petition Amend Employment law to protect employees free speech outside of the workplace

We ask the Government to amend Employment Law to protect the rights of employees, professionals and students to speak, behave and act freely outside of the workplace, without fear of reprimand from their employer, regulatory body or education provider. As long as said action breaks no law.

More details

True public debate and freedoms can only take place if individuals' livelihoods are not threatened for words or actions their employer (or potential customers of their employer) believes is inappropriate. Increasingly, individuals are being fired, sanctioned and disciplined for entirely legal behaviour in their private lives.

This problem is often referred to as 'cancel culture' and it is harming public discourse, individuals economic freedom and democracy.
