Subject: Swearing at work
It has been brought to management's attention that some
individuals throughout the company have been using foul language during the
course of normal conversation with their co-workers
Due to complaints received from some employees who may be easily offended, this type of language will be no longer tolerated.
We do however, realise the critical importance of being able to accurately express your feelings when communicating with co-workers. Therefore, a list of "TRY SAYING" new phrases has been provided so that proper exchange of ideas and information can continue in an effective manner without risk of offending our more sensitive employees.
