409.06000 – Free Speech
Employer has the right to free speech, unless determined by an objective standard that the employer's speech contains a threat of reprisal or force or a promise of benefit. (Chula Vista City School District (1990) PERB Decision No. 834.); p. 4, warning letter. At a staff meeting with teachers, in a flyer sent to teachers, and conversation with a fairly new teacher, an employer's comments were insufficient to show from which it could be objectively determined that District's conduct contained a threat of reprisal or force or a promise of benefit; p. 4, warning letter.
