It's just a sign of the times, as some companies consider banning all physical contact in the workplace.

Just when you thought you heard it all, along comes the latest in unnecessary political correctness. Now this has absolutely nothing to do with spreading germs and trying to keep employees healthy so they don't miss work. Some companies are actually considering banning handshaking in the office. So if you've ever felt a little uncomfortable by a greeting at work, soon you may not be able to make any kind of contact at all.

A new survey by total jobs found out that three out of four people want all physical contact banned in the workplace. The whole concept is to remove any confusion over what kind of touch is appropriate and what kind is not. The #MeToo movement has prompted employers to consider adding more clear-cut policies in the workplace. It's also a way companies hope to avoid expensive sexual harassment claims.

No employers have gone as far as to ban handshakes yet, but experts are urging workers to be aware of all policies at your workplace.

Here's what some of our Facebook readers had to say about a handshake ban at work:

DanielAbsolutely not, handshaking is a sign of respect and appropriate greeting.

AndreaWhat is this world coming to? Why are we asking these questions of respect? We need common courtesy.

MicheleNo for God's sake...we need human interaction and contact! Let's not turn into robots!

BarbaraNo … and why are we made to think we should ride the crazy train ? If you don't WANT to shake a hand, then don't. If we want to, why should we be banned from doing so. Why should this even be an issue ?

AmyI’m going to pretend I didn’t read that.

CeciliaNo but they should also require purell . You wouldn't believe how nasty some people are!

AnnieThings are really getting out of control. Wake up people.

TraciOmg Enough already with this bullcrap.

JacquelineI can't believe this is even a thought process.

LizNo. A further breakdown of our society.

Susan: Absurd. It is a greeting, a sign of respect. This world has gone crazy! Frightening actually.

ElenaWhat is this ridiculousness you speak of?

MellissaWhy? Things are so ridiculous!! People have been shaking hands for ever and we are all ok!!

CarlA Big Fat No. Pretty soon we won't be able to look somebody straight in the eye.

Kristin Ashley DiMariaOoh for goodness sake  Why are people such idiots? Can we banned stupidity? I find it offensive

Fran HortonNo!! This is crazy, it is a sign of respect!! People have to stop being so sensitive about everything!! There is a big difference between a handshake and sexual harassment!!

If this handshake ban every goes into effect, here's a scene you'll never see again.
