The article reports on a warning made by Martin Warren, a partner at Eversheds, that human resource (HR) managers should distinguish between political activism and party membership when considering disciplinary action against employees in Great Britain. Warren made the move due to the leak of British National Party (BNP) membership details onto the Internet. He said that dismissing an employee for political party membership could be unlawful, but if employees' political activities affect their work, an employer might be able to justify taking action.
