TrainingBytes® Go Home, Foreigner!
When we perpetuate stereotypes about people based on things like their appearance or where they come from, not only is it unprofessional and disrespectful… it also can be illegal. Actions and even conversations about a co-worker based on their national origin or ethnicity is a violation of policy and can lead to legal issues if not stopped. Yes, we all have a right to think what we want to think. But… it's critical that we refrain from expressing those kinds of views - publicly or privately – by words or actions, in the workplace.
In many organizations, the use of internet, intranet and other electronic media, such as voicemail and email, is restricted to business use. If personal use is allowed, the technology must be used in accordance with policy and the law - especially when it comes to possible cybersecurity impacts.

We all know the definition of sexual harassment... the unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature in the workplace or learning environment (according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). But sexual harassment does not always have to be specifically about sexual behavior. It can be subtle... like refusing to take no for an answer when asking for a date and then being turned down by a co-worker.

Equal Employment (from It's the Law™)
Modern day federal equal employment laws began with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and amendments to it and interpretations by the courts. It’s important to understand that sex discrimination law protects persons of all sexes, gender identities, and sexual orientations-including cisgendered men and heterosexuals. Also, race discrimination law protects persons of all races, including Caucasians. Basically, almost every applicant, employee, or former employee is now protected from discrimination because of their membership in groups protected by law.
Evaluating Performance & Progressive Discipline (from It's the Law™)
Unless an immediate termination is called for because of severe misconduct or major error, most terminations are the culmination of inappropriate conduct, unsatisfactory performance, or poor attendance that have built up over time. Most organizations follow progressive discipline steps in these situations. And progressive discipline is usually required in union collective bargaining agreements. It’s important to be careful, fair, accurate, and consistent when issuing disciplinary or corrective actions—and when evaluating performance.
Illegal Harassment (from It's the Law™)
Harassment is conduct motivated by a protected characteristic, that’s unwelcome, and severe or pervasive, and that unreasonably interferes with an individual's work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment. That’s a mouthful, but it’s really not that hard to spot hostile environment harassment. For instance, when someone creates an uncomfortable work environment for another employee by always referring to them as “dinosaur,” “the old guy,” “grandpa,” or “Boomer,” it can be considered a form of illegal harassment. And it's a manager's responsibility to make sure it doesn't happen.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (from It's the Law™)
Both the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 - which applies to Federal employers and Federal Government contractors - and The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 - which applies to private employers - promote and expand employment opportunities for millions of people who have a mental or physical disability.
