Do "English Only" Workplace Policies Discriminate Against Multilingual Workers?

Do "English Only" Workplace Policies Discriminate Against Multilingual Workers? | Language | Scoop.it

America is the great melting pot of the world, priding itself on welcoming the tired, poor and huddled masses from around the globe. Hundreds of years later, though, there is a movement at workplaces across the country that discourages those same immigrants from speaking in their native tongues. That movement - one where employers only allow the English language to be spoken on site - has some civil rights advocates concerned about discrimination against multi-lingual employees. Foreign-born or foreign-educated employees have reported feeling "singled out," disenfranchised and discriminated against.
