What can we do about offensive e-mails—that don’t come from work?

by on
in The HR Specialist Forum

Question: “One of our employees persists in e-mailing what I consider offensive jokes and chain letters to staff members. These often contain racial slurs and comments that are intolerant of immigrants and practitioners of some religions. Her boss counseled her not to spread these viewpoints on the job, so she has taken to sending them after hours, from her home computer. I’m not sure we have (or even want) a legal leg to stand on here, but I want to put a stop to this. Any suggestions?” — A.M., Florida
