Loose lips sink ships

“Paramount TV’s Head Fired Over Remarks,” The Wall Street Journal, July 20, 2018 B3. Amy Powell fired over remarks of a racial nature.  Probably got a cinder block parachute, although the article doesn’t say.

Good news is that someone reported the remarks to HR, as the policy probably required.

I’d file under

(a) Governance (maintaining the culture you want, by applying standards to the top of the shop as well),

(b) Compliance (enforcing your firm’s ethics)(and the policy worked when an employee followed it and reported the remarks), and

(c) Information (what you say in the course of your job is also “information” that is subject to company control.
