HaGaon HaRav Tzion Boaron warns against the setting of a workplace in which men and women work side-by-side.
Addressing a kenos Asifa, Rav Boaron spoke of the need of strengthening tznius ahead of the hot summer months, telling the Bnei Brak audience that one serious danger is a workplace in which men and women work together.
In his letter, he warns of the breach in modesty standards, stating this refers to not minimizing men and women speaking with one another. He states this holds true with family members too and anyone engaging in frivolous conversation and idle chatter strays from the Torah path.
He explains men and women working together is another breakdown in modesty standards and may R”L lead to the destruction of entire families.
In his letter he concludes
“השי”ת יזכה את כולם להתרחק מכל דבר רע וכמאמר תוה”ק “ונשמרתם מכל דבר רע” שלא נגרום ח”ו שהשכינה תסתלק מאתנו שהוא “ושב מאחריך” שזה הגורם לכל הצרות והיסורים, וצועקים ואינן נענים ח”ו”.
