I was asked to resign as I used some foul language at work. My direct report to Director uses the same language daily and was a referral from the VP and gets away with this. Is this something I should pursue or just move on?
Move on. You should not use foul language at work regardless. Very unprofessional.
You have to remember that the rules apply to all but makes you accountable by whoever feels the need to report it. Let it go. There are more jobs out there. Just remember to use your extended vocabulary next time.
Stop crying you got caught
I would just move on. It is not worth it !
From what I understand it all adds up to how much money you stand to lose. If it's not a great number then most attorneys will not even consider litigation. Good luck!
Move on you will not get anywhere with that because it’s called the “good ole boys” they do what they want act and speak like they want period.
Not enough information to give suggestion. Are you in a union? What was the situation? We’re customers around? Was it done during an argument with your boss or coworker? We’re you joking or did you use foul language out of anger? What , if any past misconduct and written warnings are in your personnel file in the past year? What does your employee handbook list for behavior that may lead to disciplinary action and possibly termination of employment. Are you still a new employee in a probationary period in which employers can fire you for any reason except for certain kinds of harassment or discriminatory actions? Context, past history matter. If you like your job, you may think about offering to apologize to other person and agree to not swear at work again.
Move on Kevin. I want to say just because one does, does not mean it is okay, never assume that because the boss is doing it I can, nope life doesn't work like that. Using foul language is a no no at work save the cursing for the streets. Move on you have no case there.
You can try and argue that your boss was infringing on your right to free speech but be careful because that right does have loopholes for employers
