NEW YORK UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE - HEARINGS AND APPEALS - VULGAR LANGUAGE - CASE NO. 5
This is a recent case and it deals with the issue of what language is appropriate in the workplace. In April 2011, I received a call from a claimant who was denied benefits on the ground of misconduct - specifically for muttering the words "bullshit" and "sucks" in the HR department of a retail store chain.
