Workplace gossip is one of those areas where it's easy to find ourselves on the wrong side of the line. While it may seem like harmless talk, it's not. Not only is gossip unprofessional because it destroys respect and trust in the workplace; it can also get you and your organization into a lot of legal trouble.
Malicious gossip can be a violation of policy and can even be seen as harassment and defamation of character and result in a lawsuit. So, the best advice is, when it comes to gossip.... Don't start it and don't spread it. And, if you hear something you believe crosses the line, report it.
