This chapter assesses international standards on the protection of free speech at work. It focuses on the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 in implementing the European Convention on Human Rights. It examines the jurisprudence of the European Court on Human Rights, in particular the right under Article 10 of the ECHR guaranteeing freedom of expression. As well as protection in human rights documents, international standards relating to freedom of speech and work can be found in the Conventions and Recommendations of the International Labour Organisation (ILO). Before turning to the law under Article 10 of the ECHR, this chapter examines the standards set by the ILO for workplace protection of rights of freedom of expression.
