It has recently been brought to my attention that a member of my staff has very strong right wing views and that put in simple terms he is a racist.
I have recieved several complaints from other staff memebers that he has offended with his views.
I have seen for myself 'Tweets' from this employee with some pretty gritty comments and suggestions of what should be done to ethnic minorities, Muslims feature the most commonly.
This person is well under two years so from the complaints I have recieved and the tweets that I have read I plan to simply terminate his employment with appropriate notice but no specific reason offered.
I am interested to hear if anyone would do it differently? Can a leopard change its spots? Is it possible to change a person's views and is it ever appropriate to have a member of staff who publishes such strong views?
