‘MeToo’ Hysteria: Handshakes In The Workplace Could Be Next On Chopping Block

Article here. Excerpt:

'Employers seeking to avoid lawsuits in the hypersensitive age of the #MeToo movement are looking to ban even the most innocuous professional courtesies, including handshakes.

Last week, Kate Palmer, associate director of advisory at human resources consultancy Peninsula and an alleged “expert” on the matter, said that employers may soon seek to ban “all forms of physical contact to avoid confusion about what kind of touch is appropriate,” according to The Sun of Britain.

Employers would implement clear-cut “black and white” no-contact policies to avoid any potential situation that could lead to a harassment lawsuit, Palmer told the outlet, fingering the #MeToo movement as the catalyst for the changes expected to come.

“Some employers may put a complete ban on physical contact,” the expert told British-based Metro, adding, “Whether that’s going too far or not is a question I would pose, because it’s contextual. Does shaking someone’s hand go too far?”'
