RACIAL INUENDOProfessor Cooks says that, “in the 21st century workplace, racial innuendo (no matter howsubtle) is culturally, a social faux pas.” A faux pas is French for, and the word means toexperience an embarrassing social blunder. The former Senate Majority leader Trent Lott,committed several faux pas. He said, "If all of us had voted for Strom Thurman in 1948 wewould not have gone through all this trouble all these years."The late Senator Strom Thurman was hardcore segregationist. Like Ted Cruz, he objectedthe Civil Rights Act, longest speech in Congress’ History, in 1948. Strom Thurman recentlyretired from the U.S. Senate at the age of 99. He also fathered a Black Child with aBlack\African-American woman. No matter how subtle the remarks is because you feel youhave been treated wrongly as a White Person by African Americans, or you don’t like theblack on black hate, don’t say it; because in the 21
st
Century people don’t have to deal with afaux pas as much like they had to in the 1940’s or the 1960’s. The racial innuendo As for Senator Trent Lott, he recently resigned as Senate Majority Leader because of hisracial insensitivity. Let Senator Trent Lott’s faux pas be your precautionary tail. M.5.Q.2. INTERNAL INVESTIGATIONSH.R. Managers often conduct the internal investigation which may be critical to anemployee's reputation.

o Establish a confidential file.o Define the scope of the investigation.o Determine if company policy or law has been broken.o Communicate the results to the Complainant and the Respondent.M.5.Q.3. THE OFFICE OF THE FEDERAL CONTRACT COMPLIANCE PROGRAMSThe Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), is administered under thedivision of the U.S. Department of Labor’s agency of Standards Administration. The OFCCPis mandated to oversee the federal government contractors {enter OFCCP link here}.If the OFCCP has determined that a federal contractor has discriminated against jobseekers, severe penalties and oversight to ensure that the offending organization is incompliance are implemented against the company. Each year the OFCCP receive penaltiesestimated at a minimum of $100 million, in settlement money from federal contractorsbecause they are non-compliant in recruitment and hiring practices.M.5.Q.4. EMPLOYEE BLOG-SITES AND HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENTThere are many bloggers that are gainfully employed. However, if Human Resourcemanagers haven’t monitored your website then they should…. Now when you create anonline application, they often ask about your social networking sites and blogs, this is achance for the Human Resource Office to come clean about how the organization will take astand, and if you are the best candidate for the position.Nevertheless, bloggers routinely update their websites, and offer personal critiques onalmost everything imaginable. Many bloggers write about their workplaces and the dailydynamics that occur with coworkers. For instance, I would occasionally write about everytemporary assignment, I had. I definitely would write about all the crazy days that I attendedChurch or the Synagogue. I would write all the things that I did not get to say if time permits. Iused a lot of pronouns and never directly called anyone out. However, I think people like tohear me talk about my oldest sister, as you know she has caller identification and she hardlynever ever answers the phone, “They think that I am crazy, as a fox.” Where in the worldwould they get that silly billy idea?Currently, Human Resource managers are beginning to monitor the Blog-sites (personalweb pages) of their company employees, for content that might be deemed offensive to thecompany or other employees. For instance, Prof. Cooks routinely monitors workplace trends,and has been tabulating research data on employees who maintain blog-sites.However, there are many people that post to their blog-sites, and the consequences havecaused the employee to be admonished and terminated for offending and violating companypolicy. Additionally, people have been terminated for embarrassing their employer, writing"their" perspective of workplace tension and interaction with co-workers, and posing for national magazine photo sessions wearing company uniforms or other paraphaneliaidentifying the company.There are several studies that have concluded that almost 90 percent of Human ResourceManagement departments do not have a formal written policy in tact about employees whomaintain personal Blog-site(s). Lastly, if you have a website, and the application process ask

about it then you should reveal your website, as well as your username i.e., e-mail anddomain. First, Human Resource managers should review the Blog-sites to determine if thecontext is appropriate for the corporate image, of an employee on their free time, what if people see you in the street? At this time, this gives the Human Resource Department achance to decide if they want to extend an offer of employment to the prospective applicants.Second, Human Resource managers should seriously consider developing a formal andwritten policy which offers guidelines and explicit recommendations to those employees whomaintain personal blog-sites. Seriously watch what you say because when I do a googlesearch on my name, I get the number of 18 million times that someone has searched me. M.5.Q.5. THE ABC'S OF TQM“Total Quality Management (TQM) is a commitment to excellence by everyone in anorganization that emphasizes excellence achieved by teamwork and a process of continuousimprovement.” TQM is a top management philosophy which emphasizes a continuousprocess improvement.
