Fifty Shades Of Grey Frenzy Prompts Solicitor To Pen ‘Acceptable Face Of Porn In The Office’ Memo

There are some gems contained within this memo by Lupton Fawcett lawyer Angela Gorton on how employers can handle the fall-out from publishing sensation Fifty Shades of Grey.

‘Mommy porn’ book clubs are OK as “no-one intends to gag (no pun intended) employees from reading books of their choice,” explains Gorton.

But while talking about the contents of a book is one thing, “listening to verbal re-enactments is another!”

The employment specialist continues: “A quiet word may be sufficient to douse the flames of the over eager and enthusiastic. Should the comments continue, disciplinary action may be necessary.”

However, Gorton – who admits in her online bio that she “tries most things once” – saves the best of her advice for those “who prefer the less ‘vanilla’ side of events”…

“We have certainly come across situations where employees have discovered work colleagues on swinging websites and the rumour mill has continued apace,” Gorton (pictured) explains, adding that in respect of these fun-loving types:

“Employers have a duty to ensure that their employees are not bullied in the workplace.”

    Having skim-read this in a bookshop, I’m surprised more lawyers aren’t reading it. It’s one very long contractual negotiation, and reads just like a bundle.
