[url=“”>Workplace Bullying and the Future of the “Equal Opportunity Harasser”.</A>
Everyone is familiar with the “mean” boss: a chef who yells at the line cooks in the middle of a busy rush, a manager who becomes angry when a deadline is not met, and a boss who criticizes a poor performer in front of other workers. There historically has been a legal distinction between a “hostile working environment” and mere hostility at work. The courts have ruled that anti-discrimination laws are not a “civility code.” Judicial opinions frequently say the law does not guarantee a utopian working environment, free from stress and conflict.

<a >Employer’s Incentive Plan Violates South Carolina Wage Act.</A>
A state appellate court recently ruled that an employer which made incentive plan payouts to employees on dates different than the general target payout dates set forth in the plan violated the South Carolina Payment of Wages Act’s requirement that employers specify the “time and place of payment” of wages. According to the South Carolina Court of Appeals, providing estimated “target dates” of payment, which the employer later admitted served “no purpose whatsoever” and were used only as a general guide, does not give employees sufficient notice.
