The bill prohibits an employer from requiring an employee to
attend meetings, listen to speech, or view communications concerning
religious or political matters.
The bill also prohibits an employer from threatening an employee,
subjecting an employee to discipline, or discharging an employee on
account of the employee's refusal to attend or participate in an
employer-sponsored meeting where the employer communicates religious
or political matters or opinions.
Certain employer communications are exempt from the
prohibition, including communications required by law or that are
necessary for an employee to perform the employee's job duties.
The bill creates a private right of action in district court for
aggrieved persons who prevail in court seeking payment of front pay, lost
wages and compensation, costs, and attorney fees.
Each employer is required to post a notice of the employee rights
outlined in the bill at the employer's workplace.
