    Sharonville UPS worker wore blackface for Halloween costume. She's been fired, company says - Cincinnati Enquirer

    A UPS worker in Sharonville, Ohio, has been fired after she wore blackface as part of a costume, the company confirmed in a statement to The Enquirer.

    "The company has strict policies against harassment and discrimination, and has terminated this individual’s employment with the company," wrote Kim Krebs, a UPS media relations manager, by email. "UPS has no tolerance for hate, bigotry or prejudice."

    Sorry you got an ass backwards. There are no protections for racist behaviour at work.

    My understanding was she was off the clock.

    I take it back then. I thought you were talking about her suing the company .
    Good thing they didn't say anything about the other driver who had a white face and a redneck with bibbed overhauls dressed up like a hillbilly.

    The union doesn't have a final say. That would be up to a judge.

    Pics wouldn't matter. Pic what I described. Would white hillbilly guy be racist? I'll give you the credit that you get the point.
    Be real careful here.
    If your "regardless" means the company can fire you when you are off the clock for something that doesn't break the law... mmmmmm think what your sayin'

    Yeah it does.
    Depends on how this thing develops if there will be a judge.

    Maybe someone should be careful and think about what they do outside of work and how it reflects on them at work.

    You think UPS is going to make a horrible PR move and give her her job back? Hell no she's going to have to sue to get her job back.
