Paying Employees to Protest?

Paying Employees to Protest?

Is an employer obligated to pay an employee who is taking company provided paid time off, Paid Federal Sick Leave, or EFMLA, who attends protests or other political activities?

As with all legal questions, the answer is–it depends on the circumstances.
