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.
