The Supreme Court has permitted portion of the Travel ban of the Trump administration to go into effect for foreign nationals who doesn’t share “bona fide relationship with any person or entity in the United States.” As per the courts rule, relationships between U.S. universities and employees who have accepted jobs in the United States are considered formal relationships. Even though, employees and students were allowed, the court, in an unidentified option, left the travel ban against the residents of six Muslim countries temporarily on hold.
The travel ban swirled a lot of emotions when it was first announced earlier this year. It created a worldwide doubt that was palatable. Interestingly, employee communications and engagement was the basis of much of the media surrounding the topic. Taking the center stage, senior executives of renowned companies like Ford, Google, Goldman Sachs, Salesforce, Apple, JP Morgan, Facebook, Nike, Coca-Cola, Morgan Stanley, and others have made public statements to their employees.
Although employees were not impacted alone by this iteration of the travel ban, many family members will certainly be. Insecurity inflicted into the workplace intimidate to damage the best corporate cultures and workplace diversity. Keeping in mind the recent political and social uncertainty, we praise leaders that choose to directly address employee concerns and re-establish their corporate values.
