  • Maybe the Workplace Needs Political Neutrality: Companies taking public political stands has not exactly been a bonanza for employee morale

    American Thinker ^ | 02/23/2022 | Jon Henschen
    As I perused a list of rules the British Royal Family must follow, one rule in particular jumped out at me. The Royals cannot express any political opinions. They cannot vote. They can't even speak publicly about politics or run for political office of any kind. With companies around the country increasingly perpetuating political stances, I thought of how appropriate it would be for companies to take a similar stance to the Royals, by not taking political sides. A political side we see being heavily pushed at companies is neither Democrat nor Republican, but rather Marxist. The teachings by Frankfurt...
  • ‘The View’ Hosts Spar Over Workplace Toxicity — at Work: You’re ‘Attacking Me’

    SNIP Ana Navarro and Alyssa Farah Griffin got into a massive spat Monday over the topic after Whoopi Goldberg introduced the topic of “toxic femininity.” “We’ve come a long way in critiquing some of the male practices that are not helpful and need to be called out. Women have made a ton of progress, but we can also be each other’s worst enemies,” said Griffin, who was once an associate of former president Trump. “It’s still the case, and I have to say, some of the worst bosses I’ve had have been women and sometimes colleagues in the workplace who...
  • Should I tell an employee that the new hire sitting right across from him all day is unvaccinated?

    The company I work for has weathered the pandemic okay. We’re a 100% in person, small U.S. manufacturing company. I’m HR, finance, many other things, and sometimes reception. Because of that, I’m in a unique position to know the vaccination status of all visitors (due to a Covid screening form they complete) and some details about health status for employees and their family members. Until recently, all employees have been fully vaccinated (to the best of my knowledge). There is no “vaccines required” policy; any mention of that in the past has been shot down by management. It’s been hypothetical...

    Vaccines, better workplace conditions, and higher wages are encouraging older people to get back into the workforce, so undermining business demands for more migrants. “The percentage of retirees returning to work has picked up momentum in recent months, hitting a pandemic high of 3.2 percent in March,” according to a May 5 Washington Post article that relies on data from The Post continued:
  • My organization has a “Men’s Forum”

    Ask a Manager ^ | 4-11-22 | Alison Green
    My organization recently sent out an email announcing its annual “Men’s Forum” and I immediately felt icky about it. To me, it feels different than a women’s forum or an ERG for minorities because it focuses on a group that, historically, is not marginalized. For context, I work in finance which has a history of “the good old boys club.” The email even mentions “men and their allies” which also feels wrong to me. Ick, yes. What is the event’s mission? Unless it’s to be an ally to women and other marginalized groups in your field or office, what exactly...

    Former Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said his former employer presented an “unsustainable” workplace after the 2020 election and he “just no longer felt comfortable with the programming” at the media giant. “I’m fine with opinion: conservative opinion, liberal opinion,” Wallace told the New York Times in an interview published Sunday. “But when people start to question the truth — Who won the 2020 election? Was Jan. 6 an insurrection? — I found that unsustainable.”
  • CNN exec Zucker’s ouster shows peril of hiding work romance

    NEW YORK (AP) — For all the potential peril of a workplace romance, the most common source of trouble, experts say, is allowing it to remain a secret. A case in point was this week’s abrupt ouster of longtime CNN chief executive Jeff Zucker, who said he was ’’wrong” in not being upfront with the network about a consensual relationship he was having with another executive. Zucker is hardly alone in finding love at the office. About a third of U.S. workers say they are in a workplace relationship or have been in one — and the trend has been...
  • Taking a Stand Against (Biden's) Workplace Discrimination

    One of the things that defines the American people is our passionate belief in fair play. No one should start out with inherent advantages, right? We should all be judged by the "content of our character" and based on our abilities, and let the chips fall where they may. That's why our laws against workplace discrimination were drafted in the first place. We were trying to ensure that every candidate for every position would be assessed as an individual, not based on their demographic profile. Needless to say, the recent decision of the Biden Administration to reserve a specific (and...
  • OSHA Suspends Requirement That Employers Report Vaccine-related Injuries

    In order to encourage American workers to get vaccinated, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has suspended the legal requirement for employers to report work-related injuries resulting from vaccinations aimed at combating the CCP virus that causes the disease COVID-19. This suspension of the law by OSHA does not change the fact that employers may be held liable under workers’ compensation laws or under civil personal injury laws, according to the nonprofit group Liberty Counsel. Earlier in May, the website of OSHA, an agency within the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), stated that employers could be held liable if...
  • Blasphemy in the workplace. (vanity)

    05/14/2021 2:39:00 AM PDT · by LukeL · 54 replies
    I just started a job working as a medical scribe and am shocked at the language that is tolerated in the workplace. I assumed that working with doctors, PAs, and RNs that there would be a higher level of professionalism than compared to when I worked at Wal-Mart or KFC. It seems though that it is the exact opposite and that no one can express their frustration without dropping an F-bomb or taking Christ's name in vain. As I am currently an at will employee and on the very bottom the totem pole I feel like I just have to...
  • Stop Coming for Barrett's Faith

    SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett has fallen under scrutiny for being proudly Catholic, to the point where some are concerned that she would serve her beliefs more than the American people as a Supreme Court justice. But this is a misinformed assumption; many professionals of faith can and do successfully work in the public sector without their beliefs infringing upon those with whom they work or the people their position serves. Personally, since becoming a Christian several years ago, I have learned the difference between having a faith platform and a faith practice as an owner of multiple businesses and...

    Bitcoin is a company whose goal is to make it easy for people around the world to buy, sell and manage various cryptocurrency accounts. As such you might assume it would be a pretty progressive place. But recently there has been some discontent at the company. Back in June when large tech companies were posting black squares on Facebook to show their solidarity with Black Lives Matter, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong refused to jump on the bandwagon. And that led to a walkout at the company. Many of his engineers just refused to work because the CEO wouldn’t issue...

    Goodyear Tires caved to pressure from President Trump and announced Thursday the company will now allow workers to wear pro-police messages on clothing in the workplace, a reversal from just twenty-four hours ago when it issued a defiant statement that it would only allow Black Lives Matter and LGBT messages (“racial justice and equity issues”).Goodyear Chairman Rich Kramer released a statement that said in part, “We have clarified our policy to make it clear associates can express support for law enforcement through apparel at Goodyear facilities.” The controversy erupted this week when a screen image from a Topeka tire...

    So angry? Yes, of course. Conservative? Probably not, given that most individuals don’t marry spouses with differing political opinions. Male? Yes. White? No. There are other uncomfortable facts. Ferrill built his own guns, according to neighbors, using parts ordered out of catalogs. There’s no evidence those guns were used in the shootings, mind you — but the idea of someone being able to make their own guns undercuts, in a very small way, the gun control argument. The point is, this just didn’t tick enough boxes for the left, so it’s been quickly falling off the radar. This is how...

    A study conducted by Washington Post reporters uncovered evidence of a gender and racial pay gap at their own newspaper. A contractual agreement between the Washington Post Newspaper Guild and the Post allowed the union to compile a report detailing how female reporters and editors as a group were paid less than their male counterparts. The analysis, released Wednesday, also found that people of color were paid less than white men even when controlling for age and job description. "The pay disparity between men and women is most pronounced among journalists under the age of 40," the union said in...

    The oral arguments at the Supreme Court in the case of Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC and two other cases involving LGBT employment issues seem to indicate that we’re heading toward yet another set of close decisions split along partisan lines. If you’ve been following our ongoing coverage of the case here, you’re already aware that the dispute in Harris involves a funeral director named Aimee Stephens who was fired after announcing that he was transgender and planned to begin living and dressing as a woman on the job. Two other cases deal with gay workers who were allegedly...

    On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes, Inc. v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The case arose when Harris Funeral Homes, a fifth generation family business, was sued by the EEOC because of its sex-specific dress code. The question before the Court is whether the word “sex” in Title VII and other civil rights laws includes “transgender status.” There is much at stake. A change in the law could force organizations to open women’s shelters to biological men. It could throw open the doors of locker rooms, restrooms and showers to the opposite...

    Amazon-owned Whole Foods will be withdrawing medical benefits for hundreds of its part-time workers starting Jan. 1, 2020, the company said Thursday. In the past, employees needed to work at least 20 hours a week to buy into the health-care plan. Now they will need to work at least 30 hours. Less than 2% of its workforce, or 1,900 employees, will no longer be eligible for medical coverage, under the new policy, the company said.
