Target employee dating policy
In a street video shot Friday outside a Target in Briarwood Circle, Aurora, police officers pat down Jazzmin Downs while she screams, “I’m pregnant! Admitting that the conversation got loud, Downs, 25, says she attempted to speak with a manager, who allegedly refused to look at the coupon. They violated me just in general for no reason, and they had no explanation but ‘we were in fear of you’ or ‘you made me nervous.’”" data-reactid="32"“All I want is an answer as to why they did what they did," Downs told 9 News. Her behavior in the store was such that other customers walked away or stopped what they were doing to see what the commotion was about.”Officers eventually determined that Downs did not try to hit the manager and “do not know why the person calling said that.” Downs is banned from the store for one year, per a Trespass Notice, however she was not charged with a crime.
Downs was asked to leave the store, and the police were called.9 News." data-reactid="26"“Now I have to deal with the fact that this happened and be constantly reminded that my rights as a human were taken away for no reason and that it’s all over social media,” Downs told 9 News. Target tells Yahoo Lifestyle in a statement, “This weekend, a guest was shopping in our Aurora store and wanted to use photocopies of coupons for her purchase.
Other employees who notice the relationship may claim a hostile work environment has been created by the ongoing relationship between a supervisor and his or her subordinate. Department of Corrections (2005), the courts determined in the case of a prison warden who had sexual relationships with three of his subordinates that employers should be held responsible for a supervisor's actions in sexual harassment situations.
The guidelines for sexual harassment are outlined in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) explains the definitions and instances of sexual harassment in detail.
over the three years i spent at target, I got promoted three times, through hard work and determination.
The main issue is that alot of managers do not seem to care as much as they need to.
Only bad part was the pushiness when it came to selling Red Cards.
Like alot of places, management is what can make or break the work experience.
There was a wish-wash of accountability, and there was alot of favoritism.
Law enforcement was not called because of the coupons.”The statement continues: “It’s always our intention to deescalate a situation without involving law enforcement, but we also empower our stores to call for assistance if they feel unsafe.
We regret that this situation escalated; it’s not the experience we want any guests to have in our stores.”Yahoo Lifestyle could not reach Downs for comment.
It is up to the company to train supervisors on the necessary methods of employee relations, treating all employees equally, and not showing favoritism to any employee.
One thing that companies can do in order to protect the dynamics of the workplace and to foster a positive work environment is to adopt a company policy that prohibits dating between supervisors and employees.
