From the Archives: Does “Book of Poop” Create a Hostile Work Environment?

Posted in Discrimination & Harassment, Litigation

As we continue a look back this week at some older posts, who could forget this classic post from April 2008.

In it, I answer the burning question:

Is putting a toilet training book, such as  “The Book of Poop”, on a disabled co-worker’s desk sufficient to create a Hostile Work Environment?

And what happens when your co-workers call you “Poopy” and “The Sh__meister” too?  Will a federal court flush the claim down the toilet?

You can find out what happens here. The answer may surprise you.
