As the election season hits its high point in the days leading up to November 6, employers would be wise to keep certain election laws in mind. State laws typically govern issues involving elections and the workplace, and most of those laws provide for job-protected time off to vote, according to Audrey Mross, who heads the labor and employment practice at Munck Wilson Mandala in Dallas. "The Texas version of the law says employees get time off unless their schedule provides two consecutive non-working hours during the time the polls are open," Mross says. Some states, such as California, require workplace posters that inform employees of their rights as voters. Others prohibit discrimination against those who engage in certain political activities, such as running for office or working at a polling place.
