Okay guys, where do you stand on this one? Should a person be forbidden from speaking their native language at work?
Woman Warned for Speaking Spanish at Work
Workplace Warning: Say Goodbye to Hola
by Julie Kirchem and Kevin Boie
A cell phone assembly line worker says she is afraid she could lose her job for speaking Spanish at work.
Julie Rios said she has received verbal and written warnings for talking in her native language, even though, she said, she was not informed about the rule when she was hired.
Rios, who was hired by temp company CoWorx, has been working at a North Texas plant for 10 months. But in February, she was issued a written warning about speaking Spanish.
