Currently, a significant disparity exists in workplace legal protections for an employee’s political affiliation. On one hand, public sector (federal, state, or local government) employees enjoy a bevy of protections. For example, twenty million state and local government employees rely on the First Amendment (and 42 U.S.C. § 1983) to guard against workplace discrimination based on political affiliation. Over two million federal government civil service employees lean on the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 (CSRA) to provide that same protection.
