Can I Require Employees to Speak English?

Evil HR Lady

I manage a group of employees at a company where English is our official business language. There are a few people that speak only English, while another group speaks English and Spanish. The bilingual group often communicates in Spanish, which makes the English speakers uncomfortable. I asked the Spanish speakers to stick to English at work, but they say I’m violating their rights. It’s ruining morale! What can I do?

This is pretty easy in a big office building with lots of space, but not so easy in a firehouse.
