Given the Department of Justice’s current track record – the IRS Scandal, Fast and Furious, subpoenaing the press, and other law bending activities – it is not surprising that it would reach inside its own organization and blatantly overstep the First Amendment rights of employees.

Watch at YouTube

One of the DOJ’s latest directives tells managers how they need to handle Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) employees.

“Silence will be interpreted as disapproval,” according to the DOJ Pride office. “LGBT Inclusion at Work: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Managers,” was manifested by the DOJ Pride, Association of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Employees of the U.S. Department of Justice and Their Allies.

According to the “Inclusion” document, the government can limit your freedom of speech, expression and your thoughts.

Here are some pieces:

Make the Right Assumptions & Avoid Making the Wrong Ones:

Do assume that LGBT employees and their allies are listening to what you are saying and will read what you are writing and make sure the language you use is inclusive and respectful. Don’t assume all employees are heterosexual.

2. Use Inclusive Language: Do use inclusive words like “partner,” “significant other” or “spouse” rather than gender specific terms like “husband” and “wife.”

3. Speak Up When Appropriate:

Do communicate a zero-tolerance policy for inappropriate jokes and comments, including those pertaining to a person’s sexual orientation and gender identity or expression.

4. Acknowledge and Engage With LGBT Employees

5. Come Out:

Do let your employees know they’ll be treated with fairness and respect, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, by “coming out” or as a “straight ally. For example: Attend LGBT events sponsored by DOJ Pride and/or the Department, and invite (but don’t require) others to join you.

6. Ensure that Advancement, Development & Mentoring Opportunities are Fair and Effective:

Don’t let your discomfort with an employee’s failure to conform to gender stereotypes affect whether he or she gets a particular assignment.

7. How to Respond If an Employee Comes Out to You:

Don’t judge or remain silent. Silence will be interpreted as disapproval.

At the end of the document there is a claim that these habits “boost the performance and productivity of LGBT and non-LGBT employees alike. It also allows LGBT employees to build the kinds of open and trusting relationships with coworkers and managers that are necessary for professional success.”

How does anyone build a healthy relationship with a bully?

If the DOJ could start by allowing employees and citizens their First Amendment rights and follow the laws they enforce, maybe productive relationships might begin.

It is ironic that the DOJ considers itself an expert in developing “trusting relationships.”

Social media and the like will no doubt be used to collect profiles about everything folks say and do.When it comes to jobs,your profile and your thoughts could be a real weapon against people as more and more of peoples personality is laid bare to the world.In the UK it has already started,cyber bullying,racial hatred are just some of the things under scrutiny.In the future, thorns in the place of work might have no place.I think it is only a matter of time before repeat internet offenders are prosecuted.Thinking about what you say has probably never been more important,unless of course you have already said it and it is there floating around in the cloud forever waiting for a lawyer to pick it up in one of those"Historical"cases which are turning up here.

yep. I'm VERY careful about what I say on social media. Eventually I'm sure I'll have to even be careful here. The government is spending a ton of money right now combing social media sites under the guise of the Patriot Act. A person close to me (that shall remain nameless.. ), does this for a living (had to have a TSC).
Scary stuff.

Seems as though you give an inch then the governments think they have license to take a mile,holding people in prisons without charge,Killing "suspected only"people in other countries with impunity cannot be a good thing.When you ignore basic principles,seems anything goes today.These are the early days of the world wide web and many governments and abusers must fear its power.Having"selective"principles starts the rot.

My best friends father in law is a GS15 and was a 'spook' in the Marines. He does a lot of interviews, and one day him and I were discussing Facebook. I told him I don't have one, for various reasons (wife does), and he told me that if he were to look at my resume for a interview, he would be instantly suspicious of someone that doesn't have a Facebook account. If it hadn't been thanksgiving dinner, I think him and I would have seriously gotten in to a major argument. NO Facebook page, so you are hiding something? Wow.

The GS-15 is correct. Being engaged with Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Keek, etc) is the norm. Not having an account on any of those raises a red flag not only to employers but also to the Gestapo/DHS/NSA/FBI/TSA/NCIS/OSI and Nikita from Division.

I have a Facebook account. My family is friended, I 'Like' my guitar manufacturer and a few semi-famous singers/actors. Plus I put up some I Can Haz Cheeseburger Cat pictures. Nothing controversial will ever go on that page. Employers / DHS etc will see the page, get bored and leave. Just as it should be.
