So, employers, what do you get the employee on your list who has everything? Beats me. But, I can tell you what you don't get him - a picture of Santa Claus in KKK gear, holding a noose, standing in front of a burning cross, wishing the employee a "White Christmas."
Not surprisingly, the employer who allegedly did send such season's greetings now faces a lawsuit. In an interview, one of the employees described his reaction: "It scared me, because I have a wife; I took it as a threat, that they were saying they're trying to kill me."
You can read more here, including a video showing the offending image and interviews with the plaintiffs. I have embedded the video below (may not display for email subscribers - click here to view online):
