Listener Q&A – We Answer Your Questions: Vulgar Vehicles, Restricted Workloads, PTO Negotiations, and Poor Performers

Welcome to another Listener Q&A with The Team at HR Stories! Today’s episode goes into these questions:Our handbook policy says we cannot wear anything vulgar, but we don’t have anything about vulgar bumper stickers on our personal vehicles. Can managers order individuals to cover vulgar bumper stickers on their personal vehicles?I have an HR friend who was asking me about a problem supervisor who likes to limit an employee’s workflow so that there is no work to do on a daily basis, so the employee quits. Is this a hostile work environment? And can the employer be held liable?With my last employer, I had unlimited PTO, and with another previous employer, I got 5 weeks off a year. I was laid off and looking for work, and this company I got an offer from offers 2 weeks of PTO and 1 week of sick leave we can use for whatever, so technically, 3 weeks of PTO. Can/should I ask for an additional week of PTO or not bother? It’s accrued PTO based on years of service.When should a New Leader terminate poor performers – the ones who won’t fit with the desired culture, don’t deliver the desired results, or can’t adjust to the required changes in the business? My concern is someone else should move on those people before the new leader starts in his/her new role, so it doesn’t look like you moved on people before giving them a chance.Support the showThe Ultimate Book of HR Checklists – Getting HR Right: Your Step-by-Step Reference for Avoiding Costly Mistakes.
