You understand that he has been parking offsite??? No kidding, he is doing that because your company is FORCING him to do that. I don’t see how you can claim you have struck a fair balance when he is the one facing the hardship of having to walk to work and no one else is feeling any discomfort whatseoever.
BJ’S Wholesale Club is committed to providing a comfortable work environment where all our team members are treated fairly and with respect. All employers need to balance personal expression with the need to make their employees feel comfortable in the workplace. Like all employers, we have guidelines of appropriate personal behavior and expression at work. While the policy does not identify any specific type of expression, it generally prohibits expression that is rude, abusive, hostile or intimidating. Under those guidelines, we asked this team member to not display the confederate flag in our parking lot. We understand that in the last few days the team member has been parking offsite. We are confident that we have struck the right balance for all of our team members and their work environment.
