Brown Bag Lunch, June 20, 2018

The Congressional Accountability Act of 1995 (CAA), 2 U.S.C. §§ 1301 et seq., applies thirteen federal labor and employment law statutes to all legislative branch employing offices and employees. The prevalent use of social media, both by employees and by employing offices, may have implications for several of these laws. Social media use also presents new contexts for the application of First Amendment principles, including judicial interpretations of the First Amendment rights of public employees.
