Erin McLaughlin, shareholder in the firm's Labor & Employment section, comments on employers rights when it comes to terminating employees involved in the riots at the U.S. Capitol in the Financial Times – Agenda article, "Can Companies Fire Rioters? ‘Unequivocally Yes,’ Says Attorney."

Erin encourages employers to examine the level of the employees involvement, and to make clear that any termination decision isn’t a result of political beliefs, rather the result of conduct, violence and whether or not the law was broken.
