Whistleblowers. Divisiveness. Protected Concerted Activity. Anti-Retaliation. Whatever happened to loyalty, fidelity, discipline, efficiency and structure? How can a company build a productive and pleasant workforce if the law offers so much protection to subversive employees who act in their own self-interests, based on their own unique self-righteousness? How far is too far; how much infidelity and drama must a company tolerate? It seems like courts and agencies are protecting and enabling bad behavior.

  • Reduce risk and enhance a positive workplace culture.
