It is unlawful for an employer to (AZ Rev. Stat. Sec. 16-1012):
• Give an employee his or her paycheck in an envelope on which there is written or printed anything calculated to influence the employee's political opinions, views, or actions.
• Exhibit in the workplace within 90 days of an election any handbill, notice, or placard containing a threat, notice, or information that if a particular ticket or candidate is elected or defeated, work will be stopped, wages reduced, or other retaliatory action will be taken.
An employer that violates either of these provisions is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.
