Nathaniel M. Glasser, a Member of the Firm in the Employment, Labor, and Workforce Management practice, in the firm’s Washington, DC, office, was quoted by SHRM.org, in “Limit Divisive Political Discussions,” by Allen Smith.
Following is an excerpt:
Discussions about how the candidates plan to respond to terrorism can be particularly divisive.
“Donald Trump has made news recently regarding his proposal to temporarily prohibit Muslims from entering the country,” noted Nathaniel Glasser, an attorney with Epstein Becker Green. “Favorable repetition of these claims may result in inappropriate workplace conversations and may lead some employees to perceive a hostile work environment.” …
“While a spirited debate may be had among employees about how to best address and prevent terrorism, where the debate veers toward discriminatory or inappropriate language—even if espoused by a presidential candidate—employers should act to eliminate such language, particularly in response to a complaint,” Glasser said.
