Over the weekend, many will have seen the news of violent clashes in the US in which far right and anti-fascist marches ended in one death and several more demonstrators being injured. Tweeting after the demonstrations on Saturday, a Twitter account, Yes You’re Racist, began ‘outing’ ‘Alt right’ demonstrators. This has resulted in at least one man being dismissed from his job after appearing on the Twitter feed and the employer going as far to post comments surrounding the termination of the individual’s employment. But what if a similar situation were to happen here in the UK and how would this sit with UK employment law? Would an employer be able to dismiss an employee for their attendance at such a demonstration?
