Description: On Monday, Ellen DeGeneres addressed allegations made by former employees that her long-running talk show, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” had an internal culture of racism, fear, and intimidation as well as sexual harassment. The allegations gained national attention following a BuzzFeed article that reported on the show’s “toxic work culture” — and three of the show’s high-ranking producers were fired in the aftermath.

Questions for discussion:

  • What does the article say about identifying a toxic workplace?
  • How should management deal with complaints of a developing or worsening workplace environment?
