Yes, according to urbandictionary.com

1. niggardly

word that will get u fired...even though it doesn't mean anything offensive

Example: "I said niggardly and then i had to apologize...because my boss doesn't have a strong grasp of the english language."

i recall reading somewhere that somebody a few years ago did get fired for saying 'niggardly' when describing how cheap his management was.

caused bit of an uproar, but i think the guy lost his job just the same. says so much about our educational systems. and so much more.
