Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about prison guards talking religion: Are their actions in violation of laws and statutes?
I am a supervisor in a jail. Two of my subordinates are being approached by prisoners, regarding religion (Christianity). The two guards oblige them by discussions. My question: is it legal? As a supervisor I feel they are hired to perform specific duties, for which they get compensated. The county provides the prisoners with spiritual needs such as chaplains, literature, etc. I don’t agree with the guards engaging in this kind of activity. Are their actions in violation of laws and statutes? An answer would be greatly appreciated.
