Here's a clear instance of a double standard in the workplace.
Juli Briskman works for a government contractor called Akima LLC. She is the cyclist who flipped off the Presidential Motorcade recently. The photo went viral, and Juli went to her HR department to admit that she is the woman in the photograph.
That afternoon she was fired for violating the company's social media policy.
On the one hand, I have to side with the company because Juli put the photo on her Twitter header and used it on social media to identify herself.
On the other hand, another (male) employee posted "a f-king Libtard a-hole" and got a reprimand after removing the post.
And Juli's Twitter account does not mention her employment at the company, but the male employee's Facebook does? Please.
It's hard to say where the double standard is. Is this preferential treatment to men, managers, or Trump supporters? Or is this a case where the notoriety of the picture (over which Juli had no control) outweighs the infraction?
In any of the above cases, she has a case, I think, for wrongful termination. I hope she has the time and resources to pursue that.
