One worker refuses to stop cursing at work even after his colleagues have complained and management warned him to stop. Other workers are so uncomfortable, they're planning to leave. However, before handing in their notice in a situation like this, Diana Seltzer, a Washington labor lawyer, says offended workers should try to negotiate severance. Perhaps then the company would rethink its decision to keep Mr. Offensive around. "I don't know why they're not firing this guy," Seltzer says. His behavior is "totally unacceptable. They really have a risk of liability."
