A few Years ago, I read a popular blog that was Anti Christmas (xmas) in the workplace. The Author expressed disdain for several factors, including being “forced” to having a day off and not being able to work; she mentioned her concerns being a minority, and Xmas not being Diverse due to the Religious beliefs and a few other factors.
So, in defense of the Spirit of the holidays Please allow me my humble opinion -
In nature, there are many different poisons that can bring sickness or death. Some poison comes from unlikely sources such as coral, while other poison comes from the usual suspects like snakes and scorpions. Regardless of the source, the one fact about poison is that it brings harm and maybe even death to those on whom it is afflicted.
I am thinking about State/Provincial or Federal legislation that determines who may claim to be a Human Resources Professional and hang out an HR shingle in whatever form. To enforce the legislation there would be a Human Resources Association handling the accreditation side and any other legally enforceable aspects.
The Wall Steet Journal has a feature on "Five of the Costliest Tweets Ever." (Subscription required, but I'll tell you all you need to know below.) This morning, Jon Hyman of Ohio Employer's Law Blog tweeted a link to a great flow chart from HR Bartender entitled "Should I Send This Email." Both are worth reading.
