Cursing at Work

Dear Employees:

It has been brought to management's attention that some individuals
throughout the company have been using foul language during the course

Due to complaints received from some employees who may be easily offended,
this type of language will no longer be tolerated.

We do, however, realize the critical importance of being able to accurately
express your feelings when communicating with co-workers.
