Election 2020: Employer Obligations for Employee Voting
Play • 8 min

Unlike many other countries, the United States doesn’t have a national voting holiday. This means that because American elections take place during the week, employees who work day jobs must ask off, leave work early, or arrive to work late if they want to vote. Host Ryan McCostlin discusses where the U.S. stands on a national voting holiday, employer requirements for employee voting, and other voting protections for employees in the workplace.
