Employers may not take adverse employment actions against employees who decline to attend or participate in employer-sponsored meetings, the primary purpose of which is to communicate the employer’s position on religious and political matters, including meetings on union organizing.
Public employees may not influence or give money, services, or other things of value to promote or oppose the nomination of a candidate, the gathering of signatures on a referendum or petition, the adoption of a measure, or the recall of a public office holder. Public employees may not engage in these activities either independently or under coercion from another. Public employers must post a notice in a conspicuous place to this effect (OR Rev. Stat. Sec. 260.432).
