Although it is wise to allow discussions at the work place because it enhances employees' interpersonal relationships and cooperation, however, certain issues can be too sensitive to be handled at work. For instance, political discussion can easily get out of hand especially when it turns to an argument or is being taken personally. So, I will suggest that prevention should be preferable. Thanks for sharing.

Lisa, timely article. General rules and policies, in my experience, develop based on prior instances. Discretion and good judgment unfortunately are being replaced by an attitude of saying what people want, even if it is less than positive communication. Policies, if intended to preserve positive communication, make sense. Thanks for posting on BizSugar.
