Workplace language must be appropriate

Success - Article sent! close

Writer Karla Miller's response to a reader asking how to deal with a complaining co-worker was extremely inappropriate. In her July 29 column in Business she said to use the phrase "that must suck" in response to the co-worker's complaining. Really?! I hardly think that would be what a human resources manager would suggest. That's "bar talk," not office commentary. A very poor choice of words and bad advice.
