HATCH ACT GUIDANCE ON SOCIAL MEDIA
The federal election season is already underway and that means it is time to brush up on what the Hatch Act allows feds to do and prohibits them from doing. The Office of Special Counsel has just put out a helpful guide to what is OK and not OK on social media. It might be helpful to share it among the union members. Given that the OSC just notified President Trump that Kellyanne Conway has violated the Act twice and that he needs to consider disciplining her, that should be taken as a sign that all feds need to know what they can and can’t do.
