Dear Evil Skippy:
One of my employees has a devil tattoo on his lower arm. Another employee complained that this is a display of “Satanism” and it offends her. She is demanding that the employee be required to cover the tattoo at all times. She also says she will file a religious harassment lawsuit if we continue to “force her to be exposed to the devil”. I told her that I was sorry she felt bad but the other employee is within the workplace rules because the tattoo does not violate our dress code. She still says she is going to sue. What would you tell her?
I’d tell her to go ahead and sue if she wants to pay for some lawyer’s vacation to Bora Bora. I’d also tell her that if she can’t stop staring at her male co-worker’s bare arm, she should see a therapist and be prepared to be disciplined for sexually harassing him with her unwanted attention. When she says she can’t imagine why you would accuse her of harassment, tell her the devil made you do it.
