Explore the legal and professional risks associated with the controversial topic of swearing in the workplace.

Can you swear at work? Does your company have a swearing policy? Can you be fired or disciplined for using profanity? The issue of cursing at work is more complex than it first appears. Swearing may even result in a hostile work environment lawsuit or a claim of religious discrimination. However, certain instances of swearing are actually protected under the National Labor Relations Act. In this topic, you will discover how to craft a policy covering swearing in the workplace, how to manage the legal risks associated with profanity, and how cursing reflects on an employee's professional character. Other covered topics will include how managers can lead by example and the challenges of developing and enforcing a cursing policy.
