Good parents don’t allow their kids to insult others.
Good schools don’t allow their students to bully others.
And a new lawsuit against Walmart reminds employers that they can’t allow their employees to threaten others.
The value of respect should be included in all codes of conduct and enforced by all employers. Left unchecked, disrespect grows from insults to threats to violence.
Action must be taken at the first sign of disrespect.
