Often the policy in question has to do with improper language in the workplace, in which case this becomes a synonym for saying something rude, crude, or politically incorrect.

2) human rights violation - taking away the rights people have as a result of being human. Torture, slave labor, and genocide are some examples of human rights violations.

-- from an anonymous letter on a website called Kiss My Freckled Ass Goodbye

2) "Helsinki Commission Speaks out on HR Violation in Russia"
