    Several Christian businesses and institutions including fast food giant Chick-fil-A, Wycliffe Bible Translators and Compassion International are featured among Forbes' 2017 list of America's Best Midsize Employers. "Each year, Forbes seeks to discover which companies operating in the U.S. today are best at making their employees feel happy, inspired, and well-compensated," the publication explained in presenting a list of top 800 employers. Partnering with Statista, a big statistics database and consumer research firm based in Hamburg, Germany, Forbes created two categories of employers. Large employers with more than 5,000 employees and midsize employers with between 1,000 and 5,000 employees. Statista...

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spent tens of thousands of dollars to send its officials to a “tolerance seminar” put on by the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a group known for opposing immigration control efforts. Documents provided by ICE to the Immigration Reform Law Institute in response to a FOIA request indicate that several dozen ICE officials attended a Simon Wiesenthal Center seminar in Los Angeles. The documents state that the training cost about $1,500 for each official.

    Fox News is facing renewed legal claims that it mistreated non-white employees, including a television anchor who said he was depicted as "the racist caricature of a black entertainer." Eleven current and former Fox employees, including anchor Kelly Wright, filed an amended lawsuit in New York state court on Tuesday claiming they were demeaned, humiliated, paid less than white coworkers, and passed over for promotions. The lawsuit was originally filed last month by two Fox News payroll employees. Tuesday's complaint added class action racial discrimination claims to the case.

    When we were newlyweds, my husband started graduate school at a seminary whose president frequently recommends that men do everything within their power to safeguard their marriages and ministries. Nothing will destroy a pastor and his family faster than sexual scandal.In addition to agreeing that he would not be alone with a person of the opposite sex, my husband gave me the remote control and asked me to set the viewing controls to restrict any type of program I thought would harm our marriage. He never knew the password in the years we had cable. When we got rid of...

    ESPN, the cable sports network that’s been hemorrhaging viewers for months, asked their hosts to get more political. But when Sage Steele, a black, conservative-leaning host did just that, they replaced her with someone far more liberal. Recently, Steele complained that the anti-Trump protestors demonstrating against the president’s travel ban at their airport caused her to miss her flight. In February, she spurred controversy by saying she’s faced more racism from black people than from people of other races. {..snip..}
  • European Court justifies banning Muslim headscarf in workplace

    The European Court of Justice ruled on Tuesday that companies would not be liable for direct discrimination if they put in place a general ban on employees from wearing religious garb such as the Islamic hijab (headscarf). “An internal rule of an undertaking which prohibits the visible wearing of any political, philosophical or religious sign does not constitute direct discrimination,” the court stated. “Accordingly, such an internal rule does not introduce a difference of treatment that is directly based on religion or belief,” the court stated. “The rule thus treats all employees of the undertaking in the same way, notably...

    The Environmental Protection Agency is asking all its employees whether they are straight, gay, or “something else” in an effort to create a more “inclusive” workplace. The Washington Free Beacon obtained a copy of the agency’s Sexual Orientation Gender Identity (SOGI) survey, which is part of a pilot program to voluntarily collect information on its employees. The survey first asks the employee’s pay grade, supervisory status, education, age, marital status, and race, before inquiring, “What sex were you assigned at birth?” The EPA wants to know how many of its employees are “Straight, that is, not Lesbian or Gay,” lesbian...

    When planning December office parties that coincide with the Christmas season, it is a challenge for event organizers to make celebrations "all-inclusive." Many employers may wish to offer a traditional Christmas or holiday party if they know this approach makes sense for their employees and their organization, notes Mark Kessler, Ph.D., professor of multicultural women’s and gender studies at Texas Woman’s University. However, not all faith traditions have holidays in December, and not everyone identifies with a particular faith tradition. With this in mind, professor Kessler offers two approaches for those who want to make all employees feel included during...

The CEO of Grubhub, an online food delivery service, sent a company wide email Wednesday suggesting employees who agree with President-elect Donald Trump's behaviors and his campaign rhetoric should resign. [Snip] The CEO made it clear he’s particularly concerned Trump’s victory will empower others in his workplace to act out against marginalized groups. "While demeaning, insulting, and ridiculing minorities, immigrants, and the physically/mentally disabled worked for Mr. Trump, I want to be clear that this behavior -- and these views -- have no place at Grubhub," Maloney...

    Is anyone at the New York Times pro-life? Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor won’t say. On today’s Hardball, discussion turned to Donald Trump’s charge that the media elites are biased against him. Conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt posited that 90% of the Manhattan/Beltway elite will be voting for Hillary and applauding her election. To test Hewitt’s theory, Chris Matthews asked Alcindor whether she knew anybody at the Times who was pro-life. She first responded, “I’m not going to answer that question.” To his credit, Matthews pressed the question, but Alcindor continued to dodge, eventually saying she hadn’t asked any of her co-workers...

    CHAMPAIGN, Illinois, September 15, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — A Christian's 14-year career is being threatened because he refused to watch a training video on lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, transgender, and queer "diversity and inclusivity." In April, the Social Security Administration announced all employees must be trained in LGBTQ "diversity and inclusivity." Longtime information technology employee David Hall, whose Christian convictions do not consider sodomy healthy or normal or good for people, believed that the “training” was against his sincerely held beliefs. Specifically, Hall, 42, was told by his superiors to view a 17-minute video that includes "tips for increasing cultural awareness in...

    We’ve all had that co-worker at some point: superficially charming, supremely self-confident, but they’ll walk over anyone to get ahead and not feel a second’s remorse. Perhaps, after you were burned yet again, you half-joked that they must have a personality disorder. Today, experts believe it’s very possible that your colleague is a psychopath. Groundbreaking research presented at the Australian Psychology Society Congress in Melbourne this week reveals that one in five corporate workers may have the disorder — as many as in the prison population.
