“Tr*mp.” “F*ck.” “Sl*t.” “B*tch.” “B*be.” That was the everyday vocabulary for one of the bosses at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama. He used full sentences, too, like, “The only reason you are here is because we needed a skirt in the office.” And, of course, “Bl*w me.” In addition to his fine, he was also physically talented ... able to manage his employees while, simultaneously, pulling his zipper up and down in front of them.
Sounds like a real loser, right? Not in this case. The official loser was the employee who failed to report the manager’s conduct promtly and, therefore, lost her case in court. In addition, BCBS was saved from a prolonged stay in court by its two protective shields: good policy and good training. (Baldwin v. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Ala., 11th Cir., 3/19/07).
