Iowa Admin. Code r. 11-65.1 - Political activity of employees

All employees have the right to express their opinions as individuals on political issues and candidates. Such expressions may be either verbal or demonstrative in the form of pictures, buttons, stickers, badges, pins, or posters. Employees' rights to express their opinions on political matters in this form or manner shall not be restrained while on duty unless:

(1) It is a violation of the law; or
(2) The display of such items would cause or constitute a real and present safety risk or would substantially and materially interfere with the efficient performance of official duties; or
(3) The employee has substantial contact with the public and the level of trust and confidence associated with the employee's position is perceived to be such that political expressions in any form, while on duty, might influence the public.
